|$53,791 for Ronald McDonald House|
We were wrong.
In a good way...
Cheryl Lavasseur, director of Manoir Ronald McDonald House recently dug through the archives in the basement and discovered that the album actually made $53,791!
The house is an amazing resource for the families of sick children admitted to CHEO, and is located right next door to the hospital. They charge families only $10 per night with no obligation to pay even that small amount if they are not able.
McDonald's commits a large amount of money each year to the running of each House but it amounts to about 30% of what our Ottawa location needs. They depend heavily on community support.
