Northern Nevada’s Ronald McDonald House is having a Red Shoe Gala on July 19, 2012 at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa at 6:00 p.m. This is their first gala, so come out and support them and let make their first gala a success!!
The Ronald McDonald Houses have been around for 38 years. It was started in 1974, by a Philadelphia Eagles tight end Fred Hill. Fred’s daughter at the age of 3 was battling cancer. Fred and his wife spent many nights at the hospital. Fred and his wife knew they had to change this and get a place where family could get some sleep and be very close to their children. The Philadelphia Eagles organization jumped on board and then they listed the help of McDonald.

Today there are 305 Ronald McDonald Houses in the world. Northern Nevada is has had The Ronald McDonald House since 1987. They do some amazing work for these families. If you work 30 miles away from your hospital and we all know Nevada has very rural areas. The Ronald McDonald House is a gem in Reno, especially for the family who need it.
