The Ronald McDonald House of Delaware kicked off their 25th anniversary in high style on Saturday with the Red Shoe Affair, an evening of dinner, dancing and gaiety at the Hotel DuPont.
“This was an evening of celebration as we reached this important milestone,” said RMHDE President and CEO Pam Cornforth. “We have impacted 42,000 families since we opened our doors in 1991, which is pretty remarkable,” she said.
The sell-out affair featured 300 guests and several who were notable for their involvement with the RMH Charities, including co-founders Dr. Audrey Evans and Jimmy Murray, who at the time was the General Manager of the Eagles.
Levi Krystosek was the hit of the party. Levi and his mother Dona Krystosek stay often at the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware, and of course RMHDE considers them family. They shared their personal and moving story and said it feels like they’re going to grandma’s house when they come to stay at the Ronald McDonald House.
“While we were of course thrilled with the evening, we are really so honored and thankful for the support of the Delaware community,” remarked Cornforth. “We are who we are because of community support.”
