35th Anniversary Kentucky Derby Party

Crystal Tea Room, Philadelphia, PA

A milestone is in the making, in 2018 we will celebrate our 35th Birthday at our Ronald McDonald House. Celebrating 35 years as a “Home-away-from-Home” is monumental for all the families who have stayed in our Ronald McDonald House over the past three decades.

Our 35th Anniversary Birthday Bash, will take place on May 5, 2018 as we host a Kentucky Derby Party at the Crystal Tea Room in Philadelphia.

The HOUSE that LOVE BUILT opened its doors in 1983 in Camden, NJ. Serving more than 27,000 families over the past 34 years. In 2016, we reconfigured our internal space and built 5 new family room suites to accommodate more families in their time of need.  With more families in our House each night and 20 years of use, we need to give our 1st Floor a new face lift. Money raised from the Kentucky Derby Gala will go toward our 1st Floor Complete Renovation to “HELP US GROW.”
