The Ronald McDonald House in Bend has housed nearly 3000 families since it opened in 1997. Families with sick or injured children who are being treated at St. Charles, can stay at the home for free. A concert this Friday at the Tower Theatre will be raising money to help the program. Zac Boone with the Ronald McDonald House: “If you have a child in the hospital for a month, a hotel is not next to the hospital, no laundry, backyard, kitchen , computer ,wireless Internet. We try to give them a home so they can focus on the most important thing, which is the health of their child.” The Homegrown review will feature local talent at the Tower Theatre Friday, November 12th. Tickets are $12. Some of the performers include Mosely Wotta, Dennis McGregor and Shireen Amini.
