Her musical talent and gift in connecting to people through music was brought to life with the holiday songs she played for our guests. It was a delight to get to know her and watch as she got to know our House and the families she helped through her benefit concert later that evening,” said Sally Vincent, Executive Director, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western New York.
