LMASE Cares: 2016 Ronald McDonald House Wish List Challenge

The Ronald McDonald House has been our official LMASE Cares partner since 2013. As part of our ongoing efforts to support this charitable organization, we are asking all City Groups to take part in the 2016 Ronald McDonald Wish List Challenge. We'll award two $500 prizes for a celebratory party to:
  1. The City Group with the highest wish list item count to member ratio (per City Group member count on August 15); and
  2. The City Group with the most creative wish list collection photo.
What to Do

Here's what you need to do to help your City Group participate in the 2016 Ronald McDonald House Wish List Challenge:
  1. City Group members collect wish list items at your firms and amongst friends/families.
  2. Submit your count of wish list items and a creative photo featuring your City Group members with the wish list items you have collected to Jennifer Griffin (jennifer.griffin@elliswinters.com) by August 15. The more creative the photo the better! Remember to only include City Group members in your photos. We cannot use the photos if RMH patients or parents are in them.
  3. Work with your local Ronald McDonald House to coordinate drop-off of your wish list items in September.
BONUS: Any City Group who hosts a service project event at their local Ronald McDonald House between January 1 and August 15 this year will have an extra 25 items added to their wish list count!

We can't wait to see the photos you come up with this year! We will be announcing the City Group winner at the LMASE Regional Conference in September during the LMASE Cares presentation.  Below are a few photos from last year's challenge to serve as inspiration!
