As part of their continued commitment to the Ronald McDonald House the Rotary Club of College Park presented a check for $3,200 to the Organizations President and CEO.
“It’s great to have such a great relationship to such a fantastic organization,” said LouAnn DeVoogd, President and CEO of Ronald McDonald House of Central Florida.
In 2003, The Rotary Club of College Park decided to partner with The Ronald McDonald House to underwrite the sponsorship of a room at the house. The commitment was $5,000 per year for 5 years ($25,000 total).
“After the initial $25,000 investment for the room was paid off to Ronald McDonald House in 2008, we were happy to continue our commitment and donate 10% of the profits from the Taste of College Park event each year to help maintain the room and cover the costs to house the families,” said Jane Dunlap Callahan, Rotary Club of College Park President.
Taste of College Park started in order to raise the money needed for the original commitment.
This isn’t the only organization to benefit from the Taste of College Park. Late last year the organization provided two matching grants to Princeton Elementary and Lake Silver Elementary.
“We are so appreciative of the community’s continued support year after year to the Taste of College Park so that we may give back to organizations like tese,” added Callahan.
The Taste of College is an annual event put on my the members of the Rotary Club of College Park. This years event takes place on April 28th at the Historic Dubsdread Ballroom.
