Morrison Sponsors the 23rd Annual Ronald McDonald House of Houston Cup
For the 6th consecutive year, Morrison proudly sponsored the Ronald McDonald House Cup of Houston, a golf tournament benefiting the Houston chapter of the Ronald McDonald House. The event took place on March 2 at the Black Horse Golf Club in Cypress, Texas. In its 23rd year, this tournament has provided more than $1.2 million in support of children and their families while they seek treatment in the Texas Medical Center. This year, we are proud to share that Chet Morrison, our CEO, was recognized as the Tournament Honoree for his continued support and commitment to the cause.
A message from event organizers:
Through the ups and downs, Chet has continuously shown his dedication and commitment to the RMHH tournament every year. His passion for the RMHH cause is recognized and acknowledged by all; we wanted to recognize Chet this year as our 2020 Honoree to say ‘Thank You’ – thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your friendship, loyalty, optimistic attitude & last but definitely not least, the bloody mary tent! We hope this year’s tournament is the most successful to date!
Morrison has chosen to support Ronald McDonald House Houston (RMHH) because of how it is able to serve two communities we are closely connected with. Many Louisiana families travel to Texas Medical Center to seek care for critically ill children, and the Ronald McDonald House Houston is a true home away from home, providing care, compassion and hope during their most difficult times. Families in need are never turned away thanks to the generosity of partners, donors and volunteers.
How RMHH makes a difference in our communities:
- The Houston chapter represents four locations throughout the city with over 100 rooms for patients and their families.
- Between 2015 and 2019, capacity at the Holcombe House, the chapter’s largest facility, grew by 40% from 50 to 70 rooms.
- The Houston chapter locations care for nearly 1,000 families per year. In 2019, Louisiana families represented 11% of the total night stays at the Holcombe House alone.
