Eldee Station has again donated funds to the Ronald McDonald House in Adelaide for local children when they are required to travel due to illness. 

Over Easter, Eldee Station hosted its ninth consecutive ARB Eldee Easter Festival which included challenges, campfires, kids’ activities, tours and entertainment. 

There was also a sausage sizzle and an auction of prints and a painted windmill blade donated by artist John Dynon on a blade supplied by Eldee Station. In total, Eldee raised $2000 for Ronald McDonald House. 

Naomi Schmidt of Eldee Station said this was the second year straight that they they had raised money for Ronald McDonald House. 

“We decided to donate to them because it helps to support families here and in regional centres,” said Naomi. 

Mark Craven, owner of McDonalds Broken Hill and a 2019 Ride for Sick Kids rider, said he was very grateful for the donation. 

He said, “We are very happy to put this money towards our Ride for Sick Kids 2019. We are very grateful for the community support and look forward to partnering with Eldee Station again next year.”
