  • Bake Sale Benefiting Ronald McDonald House (+)

    9:00 AM - 6:00 PM
    Chicago Campus, Alfred's Cafe

    Join us for a bake sale benefiting Ronald McDonald House (RMHC-CNI), whose mission is to care for families of children with complex medical needs by providing comfort, compassion and a sense of community. RMHC-CNI keeps families of hospitalized children together in a ‘home away from home’.

    Ronald McDonald Houses provide a ‘home away from home’ to keep families together. The Houses allow families to eat, sleep and find the emotional support they need - just blocks from where their child is being treated. This year they provided over 30,000 nights to families, offering them care and comfort during their hours of greatest need. While a donation of $10 per night is suggested, no family is ever turned away if they are unable to pay.
