Holiday Mixer raises 270 Toys for RMHNA!!

November 24th, 2015

By Ashley Fraser-Sexsmith

The Holiday Mixer was put together in support of the Ronald McDonald House of Northern Alberta. We wanted to bring awareness to the house and the magic room which is a special place where the children go in the house when they have a medical milestone, a bad day or a special occasion like a birthday. The room is full of toys, they can pick whatever they like! Our group set a goal of collecting 100 toys and put the call out on social media! We were delighted that we were able to collect 270 toys thanks to our friends online! The toys were delivered to the house and they helped to fill the room up! I am so thankful for the support of our online community and the kindness of Edmontonians. We mixed, we mingled, ate some great food and listened to the sound of Jeff Hendrick!  I'm pleased to announce that we will now make this an annual event!

A great big thank you to Dinner TV and Global Edmonton for helping us spread the word and thank you to our sponsors Ron Dickson and Associates, Leroux Mortgages, Trevor Boller Photography, The Westin Edmonton, Bliss Yoga Spa, and Confetti Sweets.
