Ronald McDonald House Fundraiser
November 27, 2012
Seven students in Michael Russo's philosophy class came together for a group project involving holding an event on campus. The group brainstormed and came up with the idea of selling McDonald's hamburgers and cheeseburgers, and donating the profit to the Ronald McDonald House. Susan Risi, marketing director of McDonald's generously agreed to have 150 hamburgers and cheeseburgers donated to Molloy. These will be sold at a dollar each, all of which will benefit the Ronald McDonald House.
The fundraiser of selling of the burgers will take place on Nov. 27 from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Wilbur lobby.
The Ronald McDonald House was the chosen charity because they help families with sick children, by providing financial support, housing, or anything which makes the family more comfortable while dealing with the child's illness. Nicole Garizio, the president of the group stated, "We feel that they have a good mission with Molloy being a Catholic college. We like to help others and we feel it is aligned with our beliefs and our values."
