Larry Mathieson, executive director of Ronald McDonald House in Alberta, tours the property at 39th Street and Gaetz Avenue in Red Deer where Ronald McDonald House intends to build in 2010. Charmen Boyd and Ashley Hunter of the Red Deer Kinettes and Kristen Staldeker, community relations administrator with Ronald McDonald House, were also on the site on Wednesday. The two Kinettes members presented Ronald McDonald House with a cheque for $3,000 to go towards funding the project. Ronald McDonald House hopes to raise 80 per cent of the $10-million project so construction can begin next spring. Once the project is completed, 11 families will be able to stay at the facility while family members are undergoing treatment at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre.
