GREENVILLE, S.C.  (March 5, 2018) – Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Carolinas (RMHCC) is pleased to present its 14th Annual RMHCC Golf Classic to be held on Wednesday, April 11th at The Cliffs Mountain Park.

The golf tournament begins with a Pairings Party the evening of Tuesday, April 10th at the, soon–to-open, expansion of the Ronald McDonald House. Attendees are invited to get a preview of the new addition at the Ronald McDonald House. This entire house with the 17,000 foot addition will be open to the public   very soon after. The expansion is the first time in the House’s history it has added guestrooms onto the current House of 12 rooms. The expansion will double the size of the House, creating 24 guest bedrooms for families to stay near their critically ill or injured child being treated at a nearby healthcare facility. The pairings party will feature a sneak peek expansion tour, heavy hors d’oeuvres and drinks. 

The golf tournament kicks off Wednesday morning at the Cliffs Mountain Park course with 18 spectacular holes of golf. Named one of GOLF Magazine’s best new courses in 2013, the Cliffs at Mountain Park features amazing views of the mountains while situated along the banks of the North Saluda River. Golfers are invited for breakfast prior to the tee off at 10:00 a.m., will enjoy lunch on the green and then are invited to a Bacon & Bourbon Wrap Up event afterwards to finish off a day of play.

“Last year, the RMHCC Golf Classic helped keep families close by providing over 650 nights for families. This year we are thrilled to host our tournament on one of the Upstate’s most exceptional golf courses and we are excited for our supporters to spend the day at Mountain Park,” said Marti Spencer, Executive Director/CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Carolinas.

Southern Living Christmas Cookbook

Dillard’s Offers Exclusive Southern Living Christmas Cookbook to Benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Carolinas


LITTLE ROCK, AR – (September 25, 2017)  Dillard’s is pleased to further its commitment to Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) and their goal to keep families of ill children close to each other and the medical care they need with Dillard’s 24th  annual holiday fundraiser.  Since 1994, Dillard’s has supported RMHC in strengthening families during difficult times with a fundraiser benefiting its Ronald McDonald House® program.

For the tenth time, Dillard’s is offering a special custom edition of the Southern Living Christmas Cookbook to benefit RMHC.  This exclusive hardbound cookbook is filled with more than 280 pages with over 175 all-new recipes, as well as decorating ideas for Christmas plus seasonal gatherings. This “can’t-miss” cookbook is available for only $10.

The cookbooks are available now in all Dillard’s stores nationwide, as well as online at www.dillards.com. Profits from the sale of the cookbooks will benefit Ronald McDonald Houses operated by local RMHC Chapters in Dillard’s markets.

“Our Ronald McDonald Houses provide families much more than a place to stay while their children are receiving treatment at nearby hospitals,” said Sheila Musolino, president and CEO of RMHC. “Through the generous support of donors like Dillard’s, RMHC is able to provide a supportive environment so families can focus on the care of their child, rather than where they’ll sleep at night or how they’ll find the time to make a nourishing meal. With ongoing support, RMHC provides sick children with what they need the most – the comfort and love of their families.”

Now in its 24th year of support, Dillard’s has raised more than $13.6 million to benefit RMHC. “Our continued relationship with RMHC gives all of us at Dillard’s an enormous sense of pride.  We look forward to another successful fundraiser this year and are honored to support the Ronald McDonald Houses in our communities,” said Denise Mahaffy, senior vice president of Dillard’s.

Volunteer Spotlight

September RMH Volunteer Spotlight


Meet Beth Ball Granger, Family Room Volunteer and friend of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Carolinas. Beth joined our RMH family as a Board Member when she was the Director of Child Life Services at Greenville Health System’s Children’s Hospital. She acted as a liaison between the House and the Hospital while providing expertise in making necessary improvements in our Ronald McDonald Family Room.

After 37 years at GHS, Beth retired from her position in child life services and became a dedicated volunteer and advocate for our Ronald McDonald Family Room, providing a wealth of support and empathy for the children and families who come through our doors each day.

Beth is enjoying retirement with her husband of 5 years Greg. In her spare time, she is very active member of her church serving senior lunches, plays golf, bridge, cooks and shags (the very popular southern style dance). She can also be found loving on her sweet grandchildren and many friends who she considers “family!”

Her favorite motto is: “People may forget what you say, but they will never forget how you made them feel.” The truth to be learned from this is remembering the impact you can make by the combination of your presence, attitude and behavior. Thank you, Beth, for being a loyal friend and volunteer for families and children over the many years. You are the epitome of your own motto!

3rd Annual One Night One Shirt Campaign

Upstate Companies Support Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Carolinas During Its 3rd Annual One Night One Shirt Campaign

GREENVILLE, S.C.  (Aug. 26, 2016) – RMHC of the Carolinas hosted it 3rd annual One Night One Shirt t-shirt campaign today. Over 375 t-shirts were purchased by employees of 17 Upstate companies and organizations in support of Ronald McDonald House. The companies and organizations purchased a specially designed “One Night One Shirt” t-shirt and everyone wore the t-shirt to work to bring awareness to RMHC of the Carolinas and its mission of keeping families close to their critical ill or injured child receiving treatment at a nearby medical facility. 

RMHC of the Carolinas’ One Night One Shirt campaign also has a significant meaning for employees wearing the t-shirt. The $8 donation (on top of the cost of the t-shirt) is how much Ronald McDonald House asks each family to donate to stay per night. Of course, if a family cannot make the $8 per night donation, they are never turned away because of their in ability to pay. Due to healthcare costs and other unpredictable expenses, over 80% of Ronald McDonald House families cannot afford to pay. The One Night One Shirt Campaign allows donors to subsidize this donation for families who cannot pay.

“We are overwhelmed by the generosity of our Upstate business community and donors,” said Marti Spencer, Executive Director/CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Carolinas. “For this campaign our goal is to spread awareness of our services and mission. We are thrilled over 375 people will be wearing their support of RMHCC.”

RMHC of the Carolinas also partnered with the Greenville Drive for the campaign. Everyone who wears their t-shirt to the ball park tonight will receive complimentary access into the Greenville Drive baseball game vs. the Asheville Tourists at 7:00 p.m.

This year’s participating companies and organizations include Alpha Delta Pi of Furman University, Robert Half, Alliance Consulting Engineers, Swenson & Associates, Walgreens, J.B. Watts Co., Inc., McMillan Pazdan Smith, Indexx Printing, Wells Fargo, Dixon Hughes Goodman, Amica Mutual Insurance Company, Baldor Electric, Greenville Swamp Rabbits, Sticky Fingers, Greenville Health System, Integrated Power Services, and Pope, Smith, Brown, & King, P.A.
