About the Event
Proceeds from the fundraiser go to help Chaia establish a weekly music program at the Stanford Ronald McDonald House.
The Ronald McDonald House provides room and board for families with children recovering from or being treated for a life threatening illness. Some of these children end up staying months while they undergo treatment or surgery. Chaia's goal is to train anyone interested in sharing their talents and time to engage the children and their families as they share the joy of music.
An interactive music program will bring joy and healing to an even larger community as the Stanford Ronald McDonald House is expanding to better serve more families in need.
