It's Never Too Soon To Do Good
Why wait? Pridemore Properties didn’t want to -- Founder Scott Pridemore made a $5,000 donation to Ronald McDonald House to start the year out right.
While a lot of companies wait until the end of the year to make their charitable donations, Scott Pridemore says it’s not too soon to celebrate kicking off a successful new year.
“We’re having a great start to 2019 and we want to start the giving right away,” Scott told us, as he handed over a check to the Charlotte Pediatric Society for Ronald McDonald House.
The Charlotte Pediatric Society is a professional association of local physicians who care for children, for the purposes of education, public service, and fellowship. This is the third year in a row Pridemore Properties, a successful Charlotte residential real estate, has donated to the Charlotte Pediatric Society and its support of Ronald McDonald House.
Ronald McDonald House offers an affordable “home away from home” for families whose children are receiving treatment at local hospitals. Accommodations allow families to stay close to their children, without breaking the bank while they are already under financial and emotional stress from a child’s illness.
“I’ve been aware of the work they do, allowing families to stay close to children that are being treated,” says Scott. “Ronald McDonald House makes it easy on families during a traumatic event of a child’s illness.”
This particular donation by Pridemore Properties is a “Double or Nothing” ($5,000 level) sponsorship of the Charlotte Pediatric Society’s Casino Night fundraiser at Carmel Country Club on March 9. The event includes a casino and silent auction to raise money for RMH.
This is one of several charitable donations Pridemore Properties makes during the year, including another charity that works with families whose children are hospitalized, Claire’s Army. Pridemore Properties recently hosted a pancake breakfast and blood drive to raise money for the organization that feeds and brings essential items to families staying in the hospital with their sick children.
