Rebounds for Ronald

On Saturday, December 11, I held a fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House Charity. Not only is this charity my Issue of Concern, but it is also my sorority's philanthropy! As Philanthropy Chair of Alpha Delta Pi, I have spent the past year spear-heading our efforts to make a difference in our community. This included several trips to local Ronald McDonald houses to cook dinner, clean, and spend time with the kids! Once a year, we have a huge fundraiser called a Lion's Share Challenge. This year, I planned our Lion's Share Challenge to be at a home basketball game, where we collected pledges of money per rebound that our team (the Wagner Seahawks) made. We got lots of pledges, and even more flat donations! Though our team lost (by just 1 point!), Rebounds for Ronald was a huge success. I'm proud to say that we raised about $700 for the Ronald McDonald House Charity! I am extremely passionate about the Ronald McDonald House Charity, and I love that I have the opportunity to support this worthy cause as a student as well as a titleholder. This event could not have been possible without the support of Spiro Sports Center, Michael Miller, my Alpha Delta Pi sisters, and the generous people who donated! Thank you :]
Me and my Little, Erica!
