About Ronald McDonald House:
Many families travel far from home and spend several weeks or months to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children – a long time to be away or to divide a family. And, for children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having mom and dad close by for love and support. A Ronald McDonald House is that “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost.
Our Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest. We believe that when a child is hospitalized the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed.
Lara thought she was hosting her standard Thirty One Purse + Tote Party. However, it turns out one of her closest friends, Elizabeth, had planned a surprise going away party for her with the help of Celebrate for Good. Of course, we had to have the Tucson staples like Le Caves donuts, El Molinito, 1055 Brewing and parting gifts from Why I Love Where I Live. Plus a percent went to Ronald McDonald House (her favorite cause to support). Needless to say, Lara was surprised!
