Congratulations on the Grand Opening of the Aurora Ronald McDonald House!
On February 23, 2008, the Ronald McDonald House in Aurora, CO had its Grand Opening Celebration. During our visit to Colorado in March, we were able to stop by to take a look around. We also dropped off a "housewarming" donation from It's All About Lappy.
Many thanks to Kendra for taking the time to give us a tour.
This new Ronald McDonald House will provide temporary lodging for families of seriously ill or injured children. Located in a brand new facility one mile from The Children's Hospital, Fitzsimons Medical Campus and close to the Medical Centers of Aurora, the new House will be in excess of 67,000 square feet, almost doubling the capacity from the first Ronald McDonald House in Denver.
The Furniture Row Companies provided over 45 rooms full of furniture and mattresses for this new "Home Away from Home."
