Ray White has been a proud supporter of Ronald McDonald House since 2007. Ronald McDonald Houses (RMH) provide a home away from home for families from all over New Zealand whose children require specialist medical treatment in another city. Each year over 3,000 Kiwi families make a Ronald McDonald House their home while their children receive specialist medical treatment, and RMH never turn a family away. It costs $120 to accommodate a family for one night and, as a charity, they would struggle to keep their doors open if it wasn’t for the kindness and generosity of the community.
RMHC New Zealand is a cause close to the heart of the whole Ray White network, with a partnership extending over ten years. Each year, Ray White offices around the country raise over $100,000 through community fundraising events, the annual street collection and the Business Club programme.
Ray White Richmond, Nelson, Stoke and Motueka are passionate supporters of the Nelson and Tasman Community. We are proud to be involved in the local community through participating and initiating community events.
We call on our local communities every Christmas to collect gifts for families staying with RMHC New Zealand through ‘A Little Ray of Giving’. Offices regularly volunteer to cook dinners for families and donate their time to support fundraising events with their auctioneering skills.
In 2019 our licensed auctioneer Brent Sturm helped out at the Ronald McDonald House Supper Club evening, auctioning several items off for the charity in addition to the wonderful support given by local Nelson restaurants. Ray White Nelson agent Grant Chaney also offered up a substantial free listing package with the winning auction amount donated to the Ronald McDonald House charity.
The Ronald McDonald House Nelson Supper Club was a great success.
