The Harris Law Firm Chefs
On May 19th, the attorneys and staff of The Harris Law Firm replaced their suits and ties with aprons and hats and prepared and served an Italian dinner for the families at Children’s Hospital’s Ronald McDonald House. The families enjoyed minestrone soup, a fresh vegetable salad, spaghetti with marinara, angel hair pasta with pesto, fettuccine with garlic and olive oil, and ice cream for dessert!

30 Years of Helping Families in Crisis
For the past three decades, Ronald McDonald House® Charities of Denver has offered a loving home-away-from-home to families needing to be near their seriously ill or injured children while they're being treated at metropolitan area hospitals.

Being alone in the hospital can be a traumatic experience, especially for children. And more than ever before, children in need of emergency treatment are being brought to Denver from rural Colorado and bordering states for expert medical care.

How It Began
After learning their 3 year old daughter Kim had leukemia, Eagles tight-end Fred Hill and his wife vowed to remain by her side at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Sleep-deprived and nourished only by vending machines, they met others despairing in waiting rooms, parents far from home. Hill's NFL teammates rallied and with the support of local McDonald's owners, the dream of pediatric oncologist Dr. Audrey Evans for a home-away-from-home for these families came true. Today, more than ten million families have been guests at over 250 Ronald McDonald Houses worldwide. And it all began in Philadelphia when the very first House opened October 15, 1974.
