The annual Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Montana’s “Corks & Canvas” dinner and auction, originally scheduled to be a live event this year, has been changed to an online silent auction again this year in due to the increase in COVID-19 cases.
“We want to make sure everyone is safe, so we’ve moved our event online for the second year in a row,” said Patty Connelley, Director of Development for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Montana.
2021 marks the 15th year of this dedicated fundraising effort to operate the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Montana. This year’s fundraiser is co-chaired by Patty Connelley and Dana Donavan.
“Corks & Canvas typically collects a third of the annual Ronald McDonald House operating budget, so this is a vital event for us,” said Connie Grammens, Executive Director of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Montana.
In typical years, these funds help more than 1,200 family members stay close to their sick children while they receive treatment at local hospitals.
The “Corks & Canvas” silent auction will be held online this year from Thursday September 16 through Sunday September 19 at https://rmhcemt2021.ggo.bid featuring an assortment of artwork by local artists, Merry Cellars Winery gift and wine packages. This year, people who donate a bottle of Merry Cellars wine have a chance to win a Denver Broncos Getaway.
