Biloxi Diocese of Catholic School Students Give to Ronald McDonald House

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Mobile was honored to receive a generous donation from the hands and hearts of students from the Biloxi Diocese of Catholic Schools in honor of one of their students from St. Alphonsus Elementary, Sophia Mohler, a brave little girl who was diagnosed with cancer and passed away in 2010.

In 2011, our inaugural 'Racquets for Ronald' tennis tournament was held in Mississippi and raised funds to dedicate one of our guest rooms as 'The Mississippi Gulf Coast Room In Memory of Sophia Mohler.'

The Biloxi Diocese of Catholic Schools was one of the event level sponsors for this year's 'Racquets for Ronald' tennis tournament, and also collected individually wrapped snacks, tab tops and donations for our Ronald McDonald House during Catholic Schools Week.

At a special fun-filled ceremony and parade on Friday, February 28, Ronald McDonald himself and RMHC Mobile staff members, Liz Calci and Mary McAleer, accepted donations from students and student representatives of Biloxi Diocese of Catholic Schools in honor of Sophia Mohler.

When families walk into a Ronald McDonald Family Room, we want them to forget they’re in a hospital. Often steps away from a pediatric or intensive care unit, Ronald McDonald Family Rooms offer a place to rest and regroup right at the hospital, just moments away from their sick child.
