The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Iowa & Western Illinois hosts a variety of special fundraising events throughout the year. We also provide opportunities for individuals and organizations to host their own third-party fundraisers to benefit the House and our other programs.

All of our events are open to the public and support our mission. Not only will you have fun attending, you’ll help us keep families together in their time of need. We are also always in need of volunteers to make sure our events run smoothly. Information on volunteering is available on each specific event page.

Does your company want to get involved? We have sponsorship opportunities available to get your name out there and support a great cause! Contact for more information.
