Mission Accomplished
Shameka’s week-long, family cross country trip from California to Maryland came to a sudden halt when they were just 3 hours shy of their final destination. They were involved in a terrible car accident on the highway and her 11-year-old daughter, Angelina, was badly injured. Angelina was immediately taken by ambulance to the nearest hospital, Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU.

Superheroes in Action
The second annual Red Shoe BBQ was successful in raising over $32,000 for RMHC! This success was made possible because of more than 40 amazing volunteers. The event is hosted by our Red Shoe Crew, a group of young professionals who volunteer their time to support RMHC. Additionally, our Special Event Volunteers, helped with a wide array of tasks including rolling napkins and silverware, creating decorations, setting up for the event and arranging hay bales, greeting guests, selling raffle tickets, and managing all of the logistics of the event. Thank you for making the Red Shoe BBQ such a special night #forRMHC! 

Community Spotlights

Mazda Drive for Good
We were humbled to be the recipients of $28,500 that was raised locally by the 2015 Mazda Drive for Good Campaign.  The event was championed by Pearson Brothers Mazda and Whitten Brothers Mazda to support Richmond's Ronald McDonald House by donating $150 for every car that was purchased during the event time frame. We are so very honored to have you as a part of our donor family, team Mazda!

Richmond Mom Prom
March 19th over 250 women came together in an event that could only be described as “fabulous” to benefit RMHC. The Richmond Mom Prom raised $15,862.50 to help us keep families close. It was an amazing event and an incredible fundraiser.

Many thanks to Alison Opel and Amanda Moore for putting on this event in our honor and thank you to everyone who contributed this year to the largest donation Richmond Mom Prom has given yet!
