“Radiothon week” is a special time for Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region, Inc.  Our 15th annual Radiothon is presented by Capital Bank, Albany Broadcasting and Crossgates Mall and it is our most important and effective fundraising event of the year.  The 2016 edition will take place January 22-23, 2016.  The event will kick-off with live broadcasts from the Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Family Room at Albany Medical Center on Friday, January 22nd.  The Radiothon will conclude with a day of family fun and entertainment at Crossgates Mall on Saturday, January 23rd.

Perhaps over the past 15 years you were inspired to pick up the phone and make a donation after hearing a child tell their Ronald McDonald House story in their own words.  Perhaps your own family or a close friend has utilized our Ronald McDonald House or Ronald McDonald Family Room located in the Children’s Hospital and you chose to make a donation as a way to give back.  Whatever the reason you gave, your investment in our charity helps keep our doors open to families in need throughout the year.

We need your help now more than ever!
