08 Sep Scarlet Knife Donates Over $30,000 to RMHC of the Capital Region
Scarlet Knife, a family owned, farm-to-table casual upscale restaurant in Latham, hosted their first charity fundraiser event on August 23, with proceeds benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region (RMHC-CR). The event featured music by local favorites Tim Wechgelaer & Chris Carey, passed hors d’oeuvres, chef dining stations, a silent auction, and raffles, including a 5-night stay at Scarlet Mango Inn, Key West, FL. After giving half of ticket sales and all auction funds to RMHC-CR, Scarlet Knife owners then matched evening donations making the total contribution more than $30,000!
“We were so grateful when the Scarlet Knife team reached out offering their partnership, financial resources, beautiful venue and entire staff – all to create an amazing event to support families whose children are struggling with serious illnesses,” said David Jacobsen, chief executive officer for RMHC-CR.
After a magnificent first event, the Scarlet Knife team visited the Albany Ronald McDonald House to see firsthand how their support impacts children and families at RMHC-CR. Plans are already underway to repeat this event next summer. Stay tuned for more details in 2024!
