Ronald McDonald House volunteers raise $101K




Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Chattanooga kicked off its annual Share-A-Night Campaign with three nights of calls to supporters. Volunteers raised a record $101,000 in pledges during the annual event, which was held at the Ronald McDonald House on Feb. 5, 6 and 12. The amount raised will pay for the entire 28-bedroom facility for about 56 days.

The Share-A-Night Fund phone-a-thon asks individuals to sponsor the cost of a family at the Ronald McDonald House for one night or more. It costs $66 to host one family for one night and over $1,800 a night to cover the costs of the entire 28-bedroom facility.

More than 60 volunteers worked the event – including every active board member. Information: www.rmhchattanooga.com.
