Today is an historic day in downtown Chicago. The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana (RMHCCNI) proudly opens the world’s largest Ronald McDonald house near Lurie Children’s Hospital!
To promote the grand opening RMHCCNI held an 86 day countdown— 86 is the number of rooms in the new house. Families, community members, volunteers and even celebrities shared in the excitement of the countdown and helped to celebrate “adding their heart in to the Chicago skyline”. You can see all the photos that were submitted by visiting their 86-day countdown web page.
Today, June 26, the new Ronald McDonald House near Lurie Children’s Hospital will welcome their first families. The new house has 86 rooms with 2 floors being dedicated to transplant patients.
Congratulations on such an amazing new addition to Chicago!
