Filling some big red shoesWritten by Staff
GCG Wealth Management, owned and led by Lake Norman-area resident Dennis Howe, recently donated $2,500 to the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte. The facility provides a home for families to stay in while their children undergo medical treatment. GCG Wealth Management is a long time supporter of the Ronald McDonald House and is a member of the Red Shoe Society (annual donors of $5,000). The first Ronald McDonald House was founded in 1974 in Philadelphia, the result of the dream of Philadelphia Eagles star Fred Hill whose 3-year-old daughter at the time was hospitalized with leukemia while he and his wife spent nights sleeping on hospital waiting room chairs and eating from vending machines. There are now more than 280 such houses in 52 countries. The Ronald McDonald House in Charlotte opened in May 2011.
