Holiday Toy Drive Benefiting Ronald McDonald House

Dear Patients and Friends of the Practice,

As we get close to the holidays, it is always good to remember the folks that may be having a harder time of it. You probably have heard of the Ronald McDonald House – this organization helps families stay near their ill children, with both a place to stay and financial help. Of course, keeping families together is especially important during the holiday season. This year we have chosen to get involved as a practice – we are sponsoring the RMHC Santa’s Workshop Toy and Gift Drive, and myself and staff will be volunteering our time to work at the house during the holidays.

We need your help! Please bring in a new, unwrapped toy or adult gift anytime before December 14 (see here for suggestions). On December 15, we will be delivering the toys to the Ronald McDonald House of Central Texas.

For every toy that is donated:

  • We are giving you a practice insulated steel drink bottle or wine glass, as a small thank you.
  • The practice will also donate a matching amount in cash to RMHC

I hope you will consider donating a toy on your next visit, or whenever you are in the area. Also, if you are looking for a charity to support, my understanding is that the local central Texas chapter is still looking for volunteers. Please check out this link for details.

Happy Holidays,

Local Artist Door Prize

Some of you may know Beth Rinke, a very talented local artist who is also part of the practice. I was fortunate to get my hands on one of her wooden art puzzles with an Austin theme. This will be one of our featured door prize on October 10th. It is really an incredible piece of art, which also can help build brain function (according to this NIH study).

If you haven’t RSVP’ed to the Thursday October 10 open house, you can do so on this link. Hope to see you there!
