Da Capo - Stairwell Caroller History - Exciting news from Ronald McDonald House

Our first recording, "Christmas with the Stairwell Carollers"
$53,791 for Ronald McDonald House
Way back in 1985, our first recording was on vinyl and was aptly named "Christmas with the Stairwell Carollers". All this time, we thought the album made about $15,000 for the 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.

FYI
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.
