The Buffalo Ronald McDonald House Unveils the “Helen Dent Lenahan Family Dining Lounge”
Buffalo, NY (May, 2015). A generous donation from The Helen Dent Lenahan Foundation, Inc. made it possible to redesign the current formal dining room and create a more family-friendly space for House residents. The Interior Design Association of Western New York generously donated their time, talent and resources to design the unique space.
To make the space more welcoming, they used muted paint colors, drop lighting, smaller dining tables, comfortable lounge chairs, a large wall-mounted television and a built-in coffee/beverage/ snack station. Now called the “Helen Dent Lenahan family dining lounge”. It’s a fantastic space where families eat, text, make phone calls, read, watch television or simply catch their breath and enjoy a cup of coffee.
