Text "KILT DAND" to 50155 to support me!
I am raising money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Dakota. This is the 8th year that men from the Sioux Falls area have come together for this fun, competitive fundraising drive. There are 12 of us working toward two common goals – raise the most money and raise awareness for RMHC.
The campaign is in the home stretch and ends on September 27 with a silent auction and social event. There you will get to see me and the other guys in their kilts, hopefully celebrating a successful campaign.
For those that aren’t aware, there are two Ronald McDonald Houses in Sioux Falls – one by Avera McKennan and the other by Sanford. Many families travel far from home to receive treatment for their seriously ill or injured child. Often, it can be a long time to be away from home, or to divide a family. For children facing a medical crisis, nothing is more frightening than going through this process without family by their side. Our Ronald McDonald Houses provide a home away from home for families to stay near their hospitalized child at little or no cost. The Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will rest their head at night. In 2018 alone, more than 1,000 families were served, providing more than 9,000 nights!
RMHC relies heavily on the generosity of the community and folks like you. Kilts for Kids is their biggest fundraiser of the year. Will you consider a gift today?
The value of a stay at the Ronald McDonald House is about $50 per night. Can you provide funds for a couple nights? How about $1 per day for a year? Imagine what you spend $1 on in any given day. A $365 donation covers the cost of a family stay for just over a week! A $500 donation will get you 2 tickets to the September 27th event; $1,000 will get you 4 tickets. For more information on the event, please contact me.
Thank you for your consideration of this cause. On behalf of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Dakota, your generosity is greatly appreciated.
