Eric Reed, a partner in Shutts & Bowen LLP’s Orlando office, spoke during the 25th anniversary celebration of Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central Florida (RMHCCF) on the AdventHealth for Children campus.
Eric, who serves as the incoming Chair on the Board of RMHCCF, introduced the speakers and welcomed guests to the celebration. During the event, a proclamation was signed into effect declaring December 13 as the official “Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida” day by Orlando City Mayor, Buddy Dyer. Following the press conference, RMHCCF shared the cutting of a birthday cake and allowed media to tour the inside of the Ronald McDonald House on the campus of AdventHealth for Children.
RMHCCF opened the doors to its first House on December 13, 1996 and has grown to include Houses on the campuses of Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies, as well as Nemours Children’s Health—making it one of just six cities with three or more Ronald McDonald Houses. Throughout the past 25 years in Orlando, RMHCCF has served over 35,000 families and fulfilled its mission to find, create, and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and families. Its cornerstone program, the Ronald McDonald House, provides a home-away-from-home for families with a seriously ill or injured child seeking medical care at a pediatric hospital in Orlando.
