With everything on Chef Connie’s plate, it’s an amazing privilege to receive her gifts of baked goods and time and talent at the Ronald McDonald House.
Throughout the culinary industry, Chef Connie is known for her extraordinary creations with a personal touch. At RMHD, she’s known for her passion for our mission, as someone who fills our stomachs with lots of yummy treats, and fills our hearts as well.
Chef Connie and her granddaughter Reece come to the RMHD frequently to make special treats with the children staying at the House. It's a great day when she surprises the staff with some of her amazing banana bread or chocolate chip cookies! Thank you, Chef Connie, for everything you do for us!

If you have ever attended an RMHD fundraiser or volunteered at the House you probably already know how rewarding and fun it can be. RMHD is fortunate to have the support of many who've given of their time for a number of years.
Lauren Swann, 2011-2012 Young Friends Board President, is one of those people.
"What keeps me going is knowing that each thing we do as a Young Friends volunteer, big or small, has a direct, immediate impact on a family that needs support."
