Carnival Night with Ronald McDonald House Chicago

The Empowerment Team at the Disque Foundation partnered with the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) in Chicago to hold a carnival night. The Disque Foundation has volunteered at RMH for years, supporting the families and children who are experiencing the emotional tolls and hardships of illness.The leadership team wanted to make the children’s day a little more fun.

What’s a better way than to play carnival games and win prizes?

The team gathered in the playroom of RMH Chicago, bringing with them ring toss, ping pong toss and a claw machine for the children to play with. A total of seven children came down to play the games and interact with the team. The children were awarded candy, coloring books and small toys for their talents and skills in playing the carnival games. Another group of volunteers from a Chicago sorority also were there, making snow globes with the kids. It was definitely a fun-filled day, for both the children and the Empowerment Team!

“It was fun to see both the kids and adults having a blast with the carnival games.” -Andy Barnes of the Leadership Team
