Raise a Glass & Grab Some Fries for Charity at Southern Indiana Ronald McDonald House Event
McDonald's is known around the world for its delicious french fries, so it just makes sense to incorporate that golden, crispy goodness into a fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ohio Valley (RMHC). That brilliant concept has been a reality for the past several years at the annual "Wine & Fries" fundraiser, which is happening once again in 2024.

What Are Ronald McDonald House Charities
There are Ronald McDonald Houses in communities all over the country, including here in Southern Indiana. They provide a home away from home for families of sick children who require extended hospital stays - hopefully providing some sort of normalcy in an otherwise chaotic and stressful situation. That is RMHC in a nutshell, but according to RMHC of the Ohio Valley Executive Director, Theresa Floyd-Maas, they are so much more than a glorified bed and breakfast...
Families who stay at the Houses are steps away from their children and the care they need. They have access to food, a kitchen, laundry facilities, and a private bedroom with a bathroom among other common living and play spaces. RMHC offers a homelike environment that gives them respite and an opportunity to rest and recharge when not at the hospital with their child. The impact of our mission lasts long beyond a family’s stay.
