West Lake Golf and Country Club was the host for the Red Shoe Golf Ball again this year!  Guests enjoyed mini putt courtesy of Mark Clark with a Diamond Pendant from Windsor Jewelers to our mini putt tournament winner!  The Red Shoe Society put together an instant wine cellar as part of our Silent Auction.  The popular “Heads n Tails” game winner went home with a flat screen TV!  The BTU’s entertained everyone well into the night and our own Jay Jefferies took a turn on the drums after he and Liz Hill finished their duties as emcees for the evening.  Where else can you go home knowing a real live chef will be preparing your perfect dinner party?!

2011 RMHC Augusta Plane Pull

The 3rd Annual Ronald McDonald House Charities of Augusta Plane Pull flew into town Saturday April 30 at 9:00 am!

 Hundreds joined us at Augusta Regional Airport for the fun!  There was plenty to do off of the runway too and many brought the whole family to enjoy a day at the airport.  There were be children’s activities, Chef Redd’s barbecue, and other surprises throughout the day including a visit from Ronald McDonald himself!

 Comcast and Georgia Health Sciences Children’s Medical Center invite everyone to “Pull for the House” – Teams of 20 compete to pull a Boeing 727 plane 12 feet in the shortest amount of time.  The winning team  “the Munchkins”  received a trophy and bragging rights until next year!

 The Tacky Docs took home the Best Dressed Award and Hope on a Rope won the Biggest Heart award by raising an addition $940 above their registration fee!
