2019 Annual RMHC Radiothon January 18th & 19th
January 18, 2019



We closed the 2019 Radiothon at over $144,000!  On Monday, January 21st we eclipsed $150,000!!


Join RMHC and Albany Broadcasting for our 18th Annual Radiothon, which will once again be presented by our friends at Capital Bank.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region provides comfort, support and respite for families of seriously ill children in a compassionate, home-like environment.

Since 1982, over 15,000 families have made 17,500+ visits to our Albany Ronald McDonald House.



In 2015, we opened the doors to our 3rd Ronald McDonald House. Our new House allows us to serve 25 families in need of our unique services at a time. All told, over 650 families will find comfort, hope and love at the House that Love Built in the coming year. 

Our support of kids and families in need extends beyond the walls of our House. Each year, 10,000 individuals benefit from our Ronald McDonald House, our Ronald McDonald House Family Room and Family Suite at Albany Medical Center. Kids will be provided with comprehensive dental care through our Ronald McDonald House Care Mobile program. It is because of our generous community that RMHC has been able to accomplish so much over the past 35 years and has been able to sustain our operations in trying economic times.

Our annual Radiothon, presented by Capital Bank, Albany Broadcasting and Crossgates Mall, is our most important and effective fundraising event of the year. The 2018 edition raised over $160,000! We cannot thank the hundreds of sponsors, donors and volunteers enough for their generosity!

Sponsorships start at just $1,000 – Contact Heather-Liz Copps for more info: 518/438-2655 or hcopps@rmhcofalbany.org
