Ronald McDonald House lands $10.5K windfall

Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) were presented with a $10,580 donation this morning courtesy of GRV’s annual Chase for Charity fundraiser.

GRV CEO Alan Clayton was a guest on 1116 SEN’s Off The Bench radio show this morning to present the money to RMHC CEO Peter Bishop.

Each weekend during the 2021 AFL season, Off The Bench hosts Craig Hutchison (Ronald McDonald House) and Liam Pickering (McAuley House) placed $500 each on a greyhound, with all winnings being raised for their respective charities.

A weekly $500 bet was also placed on a greyhound on behalf of the Danny Frawley Centre for Health and Wellbeing.
