Troy Nusbaum, director of OEM sales for Dicor Corp., has raised over $110,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Michiana (RMHC) as part of the“Men in Kilts” campaign. According to a press release, the figure was announced last week at McDazzle, the RMHC of Michiana fundraiser that culminates “Men in Kilts.”
The annual fundraiser, which began in June, features volunteers raising money while dressed in their best kilt by visiting people and companies and asking for their support. On Oct. 5 during the McDazzle Gala, it was announced that Nusbaum raised a record $110,000 only to learn moments later that Tim Chapman, general manager at Gurley Leep Nissan, finished with over $120,000.
“I am very proud to have been a part of the ‘Men in Kilts’ fundraiser. I met some great people during this process including patient’s families. I also want to congratulate the winner Tim Chapman and all the ‘Men in Kilts,’ as together we set a fundraising record,” said Nusbaum, “I am so honored to be part of an organization that provides light, hope and love of others.”
The Ronald McDonald House charity provides a place of respite and overnight stay for parents or legal guardians of seriously ill or injured children (newborn to 21) receiving medical treatment. While the hospital takes care of the children, Ronald McDonald House provides a place for families to relax or sleep or eat a hot meal or grab a shower. The facility provides day rooms, three kitchens, computer hook-ups, laundry rooms and 20 overnight rooms among other services all at no charge.
