On Friday, February 27, the On Location: MEMPHIS International Film & Music Fest (OL:M), in conjunction with noted culinary school L’École Culinaire, will present Dinner and Movie Night for the families of Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Memphis. The private event is slated for 5 – 8 p.m. and represents another chapter in OL:M’s Year of Giving as the festival celebrates its 16th season.
During the evening MasterChef Junior Season Two Champion Logan Guleff will be on hand to demonstrate one of his award-winning creations, and L’École Culinaire will provide a wholesome, nutritious and delicious meal for all of the House’s families and staff. On Location: MEMPHS will supply the movies in the form of the Oscar-Nominated Short Films that were recently screened at Malco Studio on the Square.
“The Sweet 16th Year of Giving is one of our most important initiatives in 2015, and we can’t think of a more worthy organization to partner with than Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Memphis,” said On Location: MEMPHIS President Angela Green. “Their positive influence on the lives of St. Jude families is a big part of what makes our community so special.”
Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Memphis, at no charge to its guests, provides supportive services and a “home-away-from-home” for St. Jude families and their children receiving treatment for cancer and other catastrophic childhood illnesses.
Since opening its doors in 1991, Ronald McDonald House® of Memphis has provided a home for more than 8,300 children from nearly every state and 45 countries. For more information, visit www.rmhc-memphis.org.
