The Red Shoe Society

The Red Shoe Society is a group of young professionals with a collective goal to help make a difference in the lives of families with sick children.

Young Professionals Working Together for Good

The Red Shoe Society serves as a philanthropic arm of the Ronald McDonald House Charities® of the Carolinas.  The mission of this group is to engage, empower and inspire young professionals to participate in philanthropic and leadership endeavors and build awareness of the Ronald McDonald House Charities®.

As stewards of the Ronald McDonald House Charities®, Red Shoe Society members work together to raise money, donate their time, and provide needed volunteer efforts to benefit the house.

Become a Red Shoe Society Member

Red Shoes are not the only thing to make society members stand out. Red Shoe Society members are leaders. Being a society member means you are the type of person who wants to lend your talents to help others in the Upstate.

Are you interested in helping to improve the lives of those in need in our community? Here’s what you need to know: Yearly membership dues are $89 (or $139 per couple) which represents the cost to house one family for one night, so simply by joining you have already helped one family in need. Join (or renew your membership) by sending in this form or join/renew online!
