George Mason and PSU Altoona partner together for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Washington DC

Date:  Source: ACHA

On Sunday, December 2, 2018, George Mason (DVCHC) will host Penn-State Altoona (CHE) for Mason's annual community fundraiser game. 

 

The game will be held at Prince Williams Ice Center @3:50PM, and will benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Washington DC (RMHC).  George Mason Ice Hockey noted that "we're very honored to have Coach Tom Lantz and Penn State Altoona partner with us in supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities this year". 

 

Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) program provides a “home-away-from-home” that allows families to access specialized medical treatment at little or no cost.   Research shows that families with access to a Ronald McDonald Family Room report a better overall clinical experience.   Additionally, RMHC-DC also provides their KIDS Mobile Medical Clinic, which is operated in conjunction with MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, bringing primary health care directly to children in the neighborhoods in which they live.

 

Since 2010, George Mason's annual charity game raises an average of approximately $20,000.  Each year we achieve our fundraising goal through a mix of corporate sponsorships, raffle / silent auction item donations (pro sports memorabilia / dinner certificates and event tix to theater and pro sports events), ticket sales, and financial gifts from donors who cannot attend the game but wish to support this effort. 

 

If individual wishes to donate funds, they can do so online at http://bit.ly/GMUHockeyHelpsRMHC.

 

Should a donor prefer to send a check, it should be made payable to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Washington DC and in the memo section on the check write GMU Ice Hockey. 

Checks should be mailed to:
