This casual evening on the ChiCARgo River will benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana (RMHC®-CNI), and their mission to improve the health, well-being, and education of children in our area. RMHC-CNI is dedicated to providing a ‘home away from home’ for the families of hospitalized children. Currently, the charity has broken ground on building the world’s largest Ronald McDonald House, set to open in September of 2012, right here in Streeterville.
