“The Ronald McDonald House Charities Golf Tournament brings golfers from all over together to champion Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western New York. Due to COVID-19, this year we are delighted to share our auction on a live platform, extending our reach for support to those who are not able to join us at the golf tournament. These auction prizes have been donated by individuals and businesses, whose generosity enables us to raise essential funds in support of our mission,” Executive Director Sally Vincent said. “By bidding on these fabulous prizes, you are helping the families who call our house and hospital programs 'home' – and you are helping us in our mission to keep families together. Thank you so much for your support!”
New items will be added every day.
