Run benefits Ronald McDonald charities

The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club will host Robbie’s Run, a benefit for the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, on Saturday, Jan. 14. The Care Mobile is a program of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southwest Florida. Proceeds from the event will help fund a mobile pediatric office that travels to schools, community centers and neighborhoods to deliver dental care and medical screenings to thousands of underserved children.

Grampy’s directors Bob Risch and Jim Castle have been working to bring a second Ronald McDonald Care Mobile to Lee, Charlotte, Glades and Hendry Counties. Ronald McDonald House Charities has one Ronald McDonald Care Mobile in Collier County that has served more 17,000 children since 2006.

Tickets for a golf ball drop are available for $100 and can be purchased at Ronald McDonald House in Fort Myers or online at rmhcswfl.org. Up to 100 tickets will be sold. Top prize is two Southwest Airline tickets to anywhere in the continental U.S., and $500 in spending cash. Winners need not be present to win.
