RADIOTHON

Traditionally held on a Friday and Saturday in late January, the Radiothon is one of our biggest and most anticipated fundraisers of the year. This event raises more than $100,000 annually to help support children and families facing serious health challenges in our community. Those families — along with many of our volunteers, sponsors, partners, and friends — share their stories over the airwaves as we take calls from generous donors across the Capital Region and beyond. It’s a heartwarming event that makes a huge difference!

40 YEARS OF LOVE

The Albany Ronald McDonald House welcomed its first guest family on June 30, 1982. Since then, more than 20,000 families have experienced the warm embrace of “The House That Love Built,” and each year, the depth and breadth of services offered by Ronald McDonald House Charities grows. On Thursday, June 30, 2022, we will celebrate 40 Years of Love with a one-of-a-kind, anniversary gala at the Albany Capital Center. Individual ticket options, honorary committee membership, sponsorship and underwriting opportunities are available now.
