Representatives from the New York Mets presented Ronald McDonald House Charities New York Tri-State Area (RMHC NYTSA) with a donation of $67,324. The money was raised throughout the 2015 season from a first-time partnership between the National League pennant winners and McDonald’s; where a portion of the proceeds for every Mets ticket sold using a special code went to RMHC NYTSA.
During the check presentation ceremony, RMHC NYTSA Board of Trustees President Michael Anderer and Executive Director Christopher Perry received the donation on behalf of the charity.”This wonderful program demonstrates how a little teamwork can make a big difference,” said Mr. Perry. “As a nonprofit organization, we are always grateful to have world-class partners like the Mets, who believe in our mission.”
For over 20 years, RMHC NYTSA has been creating, finding and supporting programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children. The charity serves its local community through grants, scholarships and generously supporting five local Ronald McDonald Houses, which are “homes away from home” allowing families to be with their hospitalized children for extended periods of time.
