The 33rd annual Have-A-Heart fundraiser in support of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Rochester is coming to you this year! Due to the Covid-19 safety protocols, we are not able to hold the fundraiser in the area malls where those who donated had the opportunity to dedicate a paper heart to show their support. This fund raiser is too important to cancel this year as the RHMCR is 100% community funded and we need your help – please make a donation of any amount to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Rochester (RHMCR). Secure donations are made directly to the RMHCR using the donation button.
The Have-A-Heart fund raiser was established by the Rochester area Masons in February of 1988 and to date with the support of the community, has raised over $430,000 for the local Ronald McDonald House Charities.
In 1990, the Masons held a cornerstone laying ceremony for the Ronald McDonald House on Westmoreland Drive. The vestibule of the facility was “dedicated to the love and generosity of the Freemasons of Greater Rochester. Their ongoing project — Have-A-Heart — has provided funds for the construction of this area.”
