Event Description:

On any given night, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City (RMHC-KC) serves 87 families with sick children - providing closeness to each other, as well as the care and resources they need. In 2018, RMHC-KC's 3 local Houses and Family Room provided comfort and care to 7,685 families as well as opened its doors to support over 60,000 visits from family and friends of in-patients at Children’s Mercy. You can help change a child’s life today. Sharing your time, talent and financial support provides hope for families facing a medical crisis.

Join Connext in partnership with the Red Shoe Society to receive a full-access tour of at least one of the Houses and see the spaces guest families call home anywhere from 1 to 365+ nights while their child is receiving medical care. You will learn more about the many ways you can get involved, and meet other professionals interested in giving back.
The Red Shoe Society is a group of philanthropic professionals with a collective goal to attract members to raise resources, broaden the volunteer base and enhance awareness in the Kansas City community. Their mission is to engage, empower, and inspire professionals to participate in philanthropic and leadership endeavors and build awareness for RMHC-KC. Giving is what Red Shoe Society is all about! Giving of time, inspiration, creativity and raising funds to help RMHC-KC keep families close while their sick kids receive treatment. Red Shoe Society members help to provide meals for the families staying at the Houses and host fundraising events, supply drives, and various seasonal activities to lift the spirits of the House guests during their stay in addition to being part of a larger philanthropic community representing over 80 organizations in the KC area.
