Ronald McDonald House – Monash Christmas Party 2007

Bay Rodders supports Ronald McDonald House – Monash by helping to sponsor their Christmas Party. For those that aren’t aware of the program, Ronald McDonald Houses are attached to major women’s or children’s hospitals and provide accommodation to families enabling them to stay together as a unit to support their sick child receiving hospital treatment. Any of the kids that have come through the house for that year get invited to the Christmas Party. We also give the kids as many rides in the hot rods as they want! In past years we have sponsored a ride for at the event, but this year the club presented Ronald McDonald House with a cheque for $500-00 as well as making the rods available for rides.
