Every year at a pre-golf event, Mike Rich–screenwriter and RMHC Board Member–hosts a new guest for a discussion about one of his recent films. This year the film was Secretariat and the guest was Kate Tweedy, daughter of Secretariat’s owner, Penny Chenery. Over 450 guests enjoyed the social time and a chance to hear about the horse and the film.
The annual golf tournament at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club attracted 300 supporters.
Golf was followed by dinner on the clubhouse patio. Ronald McDonald House Charities program provides a “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close to their hospitalized child at little or no cost.
