Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) offers families a place to sleep, eat, and relax while their children receive medical treatment at one of the area's nearby hospitals - an invaluable service for those during times of emergency.
The Texas Cowboys, who are responsible for maintaining Smokey the Cannon at University of Texas football games (and other events) served enthusiastically as bid spotters, spurring on the bidders to go higher and higher. Bidding on prizes ranging from all-expense paid trips to Antigua to autographed sports memorabilia, the 900 attendees of the event set the record for "Sponsor a Family" donations!
I had the opportunity to document the experience for follow-up fund raising as well as for promoting involvement in next year's event. Enjoy the video, and it you wish to join those that set the record for amount pledged, click here to make your contribution.
To Missy, Jan, and Ann, thanks for finding me - the pleasure was truly all mine.
