A month that starts with fireworks is sure to be exciting. This July, we held our 2020 RMHC of the Red River Valley Golf Tournament Presented by McDonald’s Restaurants a little differently than last year, and it was still a big hit!
Admittedly, when we first started planning the tournament, we were nervous but on July 12, 13, & 14, 124 golfers took to the course at Meadows Golf Course in Moorhead, MN, to help support the RMHC mission! With the generosity of our community, we were able to offer swag bags full of goodies, a bingo card to win a drawing, and we encouraged use of the hashtag #ForeRMHC so we could follow along!
To help share our mission, we added new hole signs with correlating fun facts about Ronald McDonald House & Ronald McDonald Family room. These included things such as:
- Hole 2: There are TWO living rooms & laundry rooms for families to relax, hang-out, and do some laundry.
- Hole 12: In 2015, a second Ronald McDonald House location was added in Fargo at 1330 18th Ave S, raising the capacity to TWELVE families.
- Hole 18: In 2018, we opened the new Ronald McDonald House that has an art room, game room, playroom, two kitchens, and so much more to better serve family needs.
In total, we were able to raise over $29,000 towards keeping families together while they stay near to their critically ill child in the hospital.
