“Our Ronald McDonald Houses provide families much more than a place to stay while their children are receiving treatment at nearby hospitals,” said Sheila Musolino, president and CEO of RMHC. “Through the generous support of donors like Dillard’s, RMHC is able to provide a supportive environment so families can focus on the care of their child, rather than where they’ll sleep at night or how they’ll find the time to make a nourishing meal. With ongoing support, RMHC provides sick children with what they need the most – the comfort and love of their families.”

Now in its 25 th year of support, Dillard’s has raised more than $14.1 million to benefit RMHC. “Our continued relationship with RMHC gives all of us at Dillard’s an enormous sense of pride. We look forward to another successful fundraiser this year and are honored to support the Ronald McDonald Houses in our communities,” said Denise Mahaffy, senior vice president of Dillard’s.
