Ronald McDonald House Charities Southern & Central Alberta was this year’s recipient for Boyden’s Executive Search fundraiser on Mar. 16, 2018.
Guinness and Green, Boyden’s signature fundraising event, gives guests the opportunity to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day while supporting local charities.
This St. Paddy’s day, it was held at the newly renovated Calgary Petroleum Club and thanks to a matching formula from Shaw, nearly $50,000 was raised.
The executive search firm works with clients worldwide and its Calgary office is known for supporting charitable organizations throughout the years.
One of Boyden’s clients had written a letter about their time here at RMHCSCA:
“We stayed at Ronald McDonald House for 44 days. I was pregnant and our son Max decided to make his appearance two months early, leading to several medical complications. One of the hardest days of my life was the day I was discharged from the hospital. I had to leave without my baby. The only reason I was able to muster up enough courage to walk out the front doors that day was because I knew we would be just steps away, at the Ronald McDonald House. It truly is a home away from home. We will never forget what you did for us during those hard days and we will be forever grateful for all the people and organizations that make it possible for Ronald McDonald House to operate in the manner that you do.”
