Last Friday afternoon at an event held at the Buffalo Ronald McDonald House, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western New York unveiled the newly designed ACV Auctions Inc. guest room.
A press release stated, “The room, designed with a warm and modern theme that includes a ‘touch of automotive,’ represents the vision and hard work of the ACV Auctions volunteer committee. The team consisted of 22 individuals who were charged with the task of theme development and implementation. Within a one-week time frame, the team transformed the guest room by painting the walls and ceiling, adding new furniture including tables, chairs, dressers and room accessories.”
Dan Magnuszewski, co-founder and CTO of ACV Auctions, said, “We are thrilled to support Ronald McDonald House Charities of WNY and their mission. Being able to support this charity and the families that stay there was a special and rewarding opportunity for us.”
Ronald McDonald House Charities of WNY Executive Director Sally Vincent said, “We are delighted with our new guest room interior design that creates a warm and cozy atmosphere for our guest families. The ACV Auctions volunteer committee showed dedication, creativity and imagination. We are delighted to have them as partners with our charity.”
The room redesign is part of the RMHC of WNY “Adopt a Room” program.
