The Young Professionals Go Shopping for the Ronald McDonald House!
BUFFALO, N.Y. (November, 2016) – On Tuesday, November 8th the Ronald McDonald House Young Professionals Group filled shopping carts with over $1,675 dollars of goods to stock the pantry and fill our closets with items from the Ronald McDonald House Wish List and Bundles of Love List.
Funds for their shopping spree were raised from the proceeds of the Group’s June 30th “Take Me Out to a Ballgame” Fundraising event.
“The Young Professionals Group is an integral part of the Ronald McDonald House Charities® of the Western New York (RMHC®WNY) family.
