Ronald McDonald House Charities Washington and Alaska provides free and low cost housing for families with children undergoing treatment at Seattle Childrens. The organization relies on donations from the community to help families year-round, especially when the families cannot afford long-term stays.
One of their more entertaining segments is the 2nd Annual "Men in Kilts" competition! RMHC Co-Development Director Vanessa Kirk Briley joined Margaret to talk more about the event. Two local celebrities taking part in the competition also joined us: Former Seattle Sounders FC star Roger Levesque and radio personality Ian Furness from Sports Radio 950 KJR-AM. Roger and Ian proudly showed off their kilts and shared why they've taken part in the event the past two years.
For more information about the Men in Kilts contest, which features a number of entrants representing a number of categories (including one child!), visit the website: www.meninkilts.rmhcseattle.org
