L3M Volunteers at the Ronald McDonald House
Our man Ronald McDonald was a no-show, but the Location3 team members still had a great time volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House® Charities of Denver.
Stu Lounsbury, Pete Seewald, Mike Logan, Tamara Rosholt, Jenny Rezvan, David Ladd got to the local non-profit early in the morning with ingredients to whip up a feast of Mike’s Fancy French Toast, mixed fruit and bacon.
The Ronald McDonald House® Charities of Denver offers a loving home away from home to families needing to be near their seriously ill or injured children while they’re being treated at metropolitan area hospitals. As the smells of french toast and bacon wafted down the hallways, parents and families emerged from their rooms to enjoy the spread.
“It feels good to give back. When you’re in a position to give back I think you should do it. It gives you perspective to appreciate the things that you do have, because there’s a lot of people who don’t have the basic necessities or their health,” Mike said.
Since Location3 started working with RMDH, volunteers have helped out with donating and cooking many different meals, participated in the grocery and cleaning goods drive, donated six computers, provided volunteers for their annual RadioThon and Gala, and sponsored the annual Gala two years in a row.
Project Manager Vanessa Goodfriend and Social Media Manager Kristina Zelisko have been members of the RMDH event planning committee for years and are currently helping to plan the 2013 Annual Gala at Crooked Willow Farms in Larkspur.

Mix eggs, milk and spices in mixing bowl, beat vigorously until there’s lots of air bubbles in the batter. The Secret to Perfect French Toast- immerse bread in egg batter quickly and immediately remove to skillet. Cook until toasted on both sides and serve with a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
