The first annual Celebrity Chef Throwdown was a family-friendly event benefiting the Ronald McDonald Family Room at Mercy NWA in Springdale, Ark. This Family Room is part of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Arkoma chapter.
Services may vary from one Ronald McDonald Family Room to the next, but families will often find:
- A kitchen area that includes a stove or microwave
- Shower facilities
- Sleeping rooms
- Laundry facilities
- Internet access
- Reference books
- A seating area with a television
- A quiet room
Help Children Heal Faster and Cope Better
Research shows that a family presence in the hospital helps children heal faster and cope better. Staying close by allows parents to better communicate with their child’s medical team and improves adherence to complicated treatment plans.
We were proud to be part of the event as both a participating and in-kind sponsor providing graphic design, video and audio production. Learn more at CelebrityChefThrowdown.com.
