Ronald McDonald House


Ronald McDonald House has been a beneficiary of IDA volunteerism for five years. It all started when Ann Medinac presented RMH with a check for $2700.00. IDA raised that money after raffling off a playhouse that was built for the Buffalo Home Show by member Todd Patti of Changes Construction. The playhouse was on display as the featured house for the 2011 Buffalo Home Show, Little Big House. Sally Vincent Executive Director of Ronald McDonald House then consigned the check to the IDA for the purpose of designing two bedrooms for RMH. Five Years and nine rooms later IDA has maintained this wonderful relationship with Ronald McDonald House by continuing to make beautiful rooms for their guests. Holiday decorating has also become a special event for IDA. It is held close to the hearts of all the members and their families that participate in the sparkle of the season to bring smiles to its residents

Rooms that were completed this year were: the dining room, the kitchen as well as the “Sweet Suite” - two guest rooms and a bathroom that has been dedicated in tribute to our friend and past president Ann Medinanc.
