Ronald McDonald House London (RMHL) “Dinner at our House”
Please join your fellow UWOSA colleagues as we come together for Dinner at our House nights at Ronald McDonald House London (RMHL).

To help with the cost of the dinner which includes the entrée, salad, juice, & dessert, our members who volunteer to participate will be asked to contribute $10 (cash) that will be used to purchase the dinner items.
