OnSite Retail Group was proud to attend and participate as a Table Sponsor at this year’s Red Tie Gala supporting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Cincinnati. The festivities were held at the Hyatt Regency Cincinnati on Saturday, October 7th. This year marked the 35th anniversary of Cincinnati’s Ronald McDonald House. The event featured a silent auction, cocktails, dinner, live music & dancing in addition to the fundraising program which was a huge success, far exceeding this year’s goal!
Since 1982, the Cincinnati Ronald McDonald House has welcomed 30,000 families, including 2,004 last year – the most ever in a single year! The Ronald McDonald House provides hope for families facing some of the most difficult times of their lives as they experience the stress of having a critically ill child. Families from across Ohio and around the world come to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital seeking life-saving treatment for their critically ill children. In 2016, the House welcomed guests from 43 states and 19 different countries. Many families arrive at the House feeling exhausted, emotionally spent and financially drained from facing overwhelming medical expenses. The House provides a “home away from home” for 78 families every night while their children are nearby receiving medical treatment. When a family stays at the House, those concerns are taken away so the parents and family can focus on what’s most important – caring for their critically ill child. The House provides each family a comfortable private bedroom, healthy meals, bright playrooms, and a caring staff and volunteers for support.
OnSite Retail Group encourages everyone to learn more about the Cincinnati Ronald McDonald House at www.rmhcincinnati.org. Please consider a donation today – the House could not be the wonderful home it is today for so many families in need without the generous support of the community!
