Ronald McDonald House of Dallas “Share the Love” Fundraiser Set for May 16

On May 16, 2014, people across the Metroplex will join together to show support and spread awareness of the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas’ mission by wearing the 2014 “Share the Love” t-shirt. Businesses, civic organizations and community groups are asked to show their love by purchasing and wearing this t-shirt. The purchase of these shirts directly helps families staying at the House, which has the tagline “the House That Love Built.”
 
Jill Cumnock, CEO of Ronald McDonald House of Dallas, said, “Families staying at the House are asked to contribute $15 a night toward the cost of their stay. However, they are never turned away for the inability to pay. When you purchase a ‘Share the Love’ t-shirt, you are helping support a home-away-from-home for a family with a sick or injured child.”
 
In addition to wearing a “Share the Love” t-shirt, the Dallas House will also host a BBQ dinner at 5:30 p.m. in honor of the families staying at the House and the sponsors. Dinner is provided for an additional donation of $15 per person at http://isharethelove.org/. Cumnock added, “Sharing a meal with families who stay with us is something we want to do to share our love with them. We also want to add a special thanks to Spring Creek BBQ’s James Carroll, who is also our Ronald McDonald House of Dallas Young Friends president, for donating the dinner.”
 
On May 16, t-shirt wearers are encouraged to host events and to share photos of themselves and their groups via social media at https://www.facebook.com/rmhdallas and @RMHDallas. Cumnock said, “We encourage businesses to host events sporting the shirts. Last year, for example, Lute Riley Honda purchased shirts for all 185 employees and hosted a cookout lunch that General Manager Dan Weiss grilled all by himself for the House.”
