This year The Ronald McDonald House Charity-Upper Midwest, Minneapolis celebrates 30 years of supporting families. It’s time to make a splash a BIG SPLASH to celebrate these wonderful milestones!
Splash Day is Village Green’s nationwide fundraising campaign benefitting local Ronald McDonald Houses, which provides housing, meals and support for families whose children are hospitalized for extended periods. The support offered by the Ronald McDonald House is essential to those families in need of their services, keeping them close to their children when they need it most.
The Splash Day spring fundraiser, which serves as the Village Green community’s largest nationwide fundraiser, began with a dare 27 years ago. Residents were encouraged to raise money for a good cause - and a chance to watch their property manager cannonball into a freezing cold, UNHEATED, pool. That first event proved a huge success that the tradition grew nationwide with donations reaching over $101,000 a year. All funds benefiting the Ronald McDonald House! This level of community outreach provides a great opportunity for our residents, staff and local businesses to come together to demonstrate a sincere appreciation for the bounty we enjoy by helping those in need.
Join us in this fun and heartfelt event!
The Splash Day campaign begins April 27th and runs through May 26th, 2019. Join with us in showing the Ronald McDonald House Upper- Midwest that we all support what they do for families in our community.
