“James has been a strong supporter of the House for several years through our relationship with MDC Productions and we are so appreciative of his generosity of time that he has given to the families of Ronald McDonald House New York who have a child fighting pediatric cancer,” said Ruth Browne, CEO & President of Ronald McDonald House New York. “James has personally gone above and beyond to make this incredible sweepstakes initiative come to life and we are so grateful to be the chosen recipient.”

Through MDC, McAvoy was introduced to the House a few years ago and since then he’s spent quality time lifting the spirits of children and families going through extreme hardship.
