Helping out the House. – Ronald McDonald House

Ronald and I go way back!

Ronald and I go way back!

So besides just selling houses, there is another house here in Nashville that I love. The Ronald McDonald House!  I do some volunteer work with the local Ronald McDonald House. It’s a great Non-Profit. I have had friends all over the country with sick children use their local House when they have a loved one in the local Children’s Hospital. It warms my heart to know that I help with an organization that does so much for families.

If you aren’t familiar with what the house does, a brief way to describe it is this. Families with Sick babies, children, large and small stay in the house for an asked donation of $15 a night to help keep their costs down while caring for their kids. Most of these children have issues such as heart problems, cancer, and other serious medical conditions. Families that are able to stay to together when faced with a sick child, heal better and cope better with the situation.

The local Nashville house has 32 bedrooms that are at FULL occupancy every night, 365 days of the year. The house is always open. If you live locally near at house, volunteers are always welcome. If your company wants to take a day to give back, they can do many things, set up a fun activity for the children in the house to do. Come cook a meal in their commercial kitchen for the families to eat. There are so many ways to help! Just call your local House and asked!

Currently, we are getting ready for the D’Vine Selections and Wine Tasting Auction set to take place on Friday, November 14th at the Nashville Farmers Market. This event is set up for people to come taste some local food and sample wines from all over. The silent auction has tons of items large and small. One of the reasons I really enjoy this event is because it is a very friendly open fundraiser. The items aren’t all crazy expensive, the food is great and there are all kinds of people that come. People wear everything from Jeans and a nice dress shirt to cocktail attire, and all still fit in!

If you would like to purchase tickets, please check out the website.  We would love to have you join us and help the house. Every ticket purchased and event item bid on, goes directly to the Ronald McDonald House!
