Please Join Me in Supporting the Ronald McDonald House Charities and Our Walk for Kids 2018!
It is a sincere honor and pleasure for me to serve on the Board of Directors and as Chairman of the Brand Strategy Committee of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California, a very special non-profit organization which provides housing, financial support, community, and a “home away from home” for families whose children are being treated for a variety of serious illnesses at one of the leading children’s hospitals located in the Los Angeles area.
As many of you may recall, I have a deep, personal history with and passion for this organization, having served for many years on the Board of the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House before joining the RMHCSC chapter Board two years ago. Our chapter is the largest in the world, having cared for many tens of thousands of families with children in need over the past 40 years with our six RMHC Houses in the region (Los Angeles, Inland Empire, Long Beach, Orange County, Pasadena, and Bakersfield) and medically-supervised camp, among other community-based initiatives.
On Sunday, April 8th, we will be hosting the Walk for Kids at Exposition Park, an event which is near-and-dear to my heart as a past Chairman who helped to grow this into our largest and most impactful annual fundraising event across the region. Once again, our goal this year is to raise more than $2,000,000 -- funds which are essential to supporting the hundreds of families from across the state, country, and overseas that stay at one of our houses each night. And, it is worth noting, the majority of the organization’s financial support comes from individual donors like you and me.
Over the past decade, generous contributions from my friends and family have raised more than $100,000 for this truly worthy cause. This year, as with every Walk for Kids, my goal is to raise $10,000 (hoping for much more!) but I need your help in making this happen. If you are inspired, please set up your own team and join our walk in person. I would love to see you there. And even if you are unable to personally contribute this year, please consider spreading the good word about this important organization.
It is my hope and wish that many of you will consider joining me by giving today and supporting our Walk for Kids 2018. And, as I have learned over the years, every dollar counts. With your help and support, we can change the world for the better, one child and family at a time!
