Home for Dinner

presented by Beedie

Sharing a meal with loved ones is always a special occasion and it’s even more special when it raises funds to support families staying at Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon. That’s what Home for Dinner is all about. By hosting dinner and having guests donate instead of bringing wine or a dish, you can help RMH BC provide a place to stay for families who need to travel far from home when their child requires life-saving medical treatment.
 
Your next family meal or virtual get-together can have a huge impact, while still following current social distancing recommendations and public health guidelines.

About Home for Dinner

Hosting a Home for Dinner event or virtual gathering is the perfect way to elevate a meal with those you love into something even more meaningful. Instead of asking guests to bring something for dinner, hosts can invite their friends and family to donate to their personal fundraising page, so that families with sick children can continue to share meals and moments together while they heal at RMH BC.
 
In 2020, more than 500 participants raised funds to provide 4,000 nights of comfort and support for families in need. Supporters, RMH BC families, corporate partners, and special guests from 170 locations in BC, Yukon, and beyond, also came together to celebrate this incredible impact at our first virtual celebration.

KAMA’S FAMILY HOME FOR DINNER: "My family and I happily hosted a Home for Dinner event, just as one of my friends happened to be staying at Ronald McDonald House BC with her daughter. We loved being able to contribute with the simple act of cooking and eating a family meal together. It was a great way to make memories together and give back to the cause we care about – a feel-good experience."

ERIN AND JASON'S OKTOBERFEST FEAST: “We recently hosted a Home for Dinner event. It was easy to combine a dinner party with friends and collect money for RMH BC. We had friends come enjoy an Oktoberfest feast including homemade pretzels, Jason’s home brew beer selections, and our guests brought donations in lieu of a bottle of wine or hostess gift. It was a great night and we raised $250!”

MICHELE'S HOME FOR DINNER GARDEN PARTY: “This August, I had the honour of hosting a dinner party in support of Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon. It felt so good to bring awareness to a campaign that helps hundreds of families each year. I kept it easy by ordering in dinner and bringing my community of good friends together to share in laughter, good food and a summer night to remember. I know that if I was able to support even one family through an extremely difficult time, it was SO worth it.”

YVONNA'S HOME FOR DINNER: "Organizing a Home For Dinner for the RMHBC was such an honour! Instead of just having another nice meal out like we usually do we, we were able to give back to kids that are in need and families that rely on the House during the toughest times in their lives. I encourage everyone to put together whether big or small, casual or fancy a Home For Dinner fundraiser because at the end of the day it's about family and enjoying a meal together and why not give back while doing that" -Yvonna
