The Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Inland Northwest sits at 1015 W. 5th Ave, Spokane, WA. It's located alongside the Shriners Hospital and the Kids Clinic. It's a beacon of hope for families with sick children staying at hospitals nearby, with photos and cards plastered to their bulletin boards attesting to this fact. The house has 21 private rooms, living rooms, sitting areas/playrooms, fully equipped kitchens, dining rooms, and laundry rooms. Outside you'll find a playground, with plenty of things to climb, swing on, and slide down, along with one of the most popular places ... the Looney Tunes Room with video games, stuffed animals, toys and more. It's a child's paradise!
Every day at the House, children and their families bustle in and out the doors in between hospital visits and family outings. It's really like any other family home ... there are people everywhere, you'll find the occasional sock on the floor and toys can be found throughout the House.
It is not uncommon that the (21) family bedrooms will be full, with a waiting list of up to (24) families waiting. Really, the house is full all year long because there are always families in need of a place away from home, to call home.
What they're doing at Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Inland Northwest is amazing. The Gallop Stallion Services Auction is thrilled to be supporting the RMHC again this year and encourage you to show your support by being involved with us on Sunday, January 27, 2019 at the Northern Quest Casino Pavilion. Whether its a stallion service to a National, World, or Congress Champion, a Leading Sire in Industry, or a trip to a Five Star All Inclusive Resort, All Inclusive Dude Ranch, Caribbean Cruise for (2), or shooting the white water rapids on an all day ride ... you can be involved and receive something by your participation while helping a family be with their child in a hospital. All proceeds from the event go to the RMHC, therefore going directly to the kids and their families! Volunteered help is always welcomed at the RMHC, so link yourself and click on: rmhcinlandnw.org to find out how you can get involved. Weather you successfully purchased an auction item or not ... you can get a head start 'locally' by collecting pop tabs off your Coke cans! The RMHC raises money by recycling the tabs, so start collecting and you can drop them off at the House!
