Ronald McDonald House in the Hub!
Members and fans visiting the LGIAsuper Community Hub at tonight's home semi-final against the Broncos will have the chance to learn more about Ronald McDonald House.
A feature at all Cowboys home games, LGIAsuper Community Hub is located on the southern side of the Western gate at 1300SMILES Stadium.
Ronald McDonald House volunteers and staff will be at the Hub offering visitors the chance to paint their faces or spray their hair in Cowboys colours.
Ronald McDonald House provides a 'home away from home’ for many North Queensland families who have a child being treated at the Townsville Hospital, while also providing a learning program for children recovering and preparing to return to school after a significant period of treatment.
The charity’s Family Retreat in Palm Cove is also a popular destination for families to spend a week making memories after their child is discharged from hospital.
While fans visiting the LGIAsuper Community Hub can learn more about the charity while they get their game day colours on, their gold coin donations will help Ronald McDonald House’s fundraising for construction of a family room at the Townsville Hospital for use by all families with children receiving care in the children’s ward.
Community Hub partner LGIAsuper manages almost $9.5 billion in retirement savings for around 90,000 current and former Queensland local government employee members.
“As a super fund, LGIAsuper is focused on improving our members’ financial literacy to help them make informed decisions about their money and financial future.
“LGIAsuper is proud to support the vital role that Ronald McDonald House plays in helping kids facing significant hospital stays and their families,” LGIAsuper CEO David Todd said.
"It's great that, with the support of LGIAsuper, we can provide the Community Hub opportunity at our home games for charities and causes like Ronald McDonald House," Fiona Pelling, North Queensland Toyota Cowboys General Manager – Community said.
