Silver Dollar Bar raises funds for local charity
The Silver Dollar Bar in West Fargo held its 12th annual Fun Run and Pig Feed on May 15, benefitting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Red River Valley. The event attracted 206 motorcyclists, up from 64 riders in 2009, and raised $4,516.
The two local Ronald McDonald Houses provide a home-away-from-home for parents and families whose seriously ill children are being treated at MeritCare Medical Center, Innovis Health, Roger Maris Cancer Center, Prairie St. John's, and the Eating Disorder Institute. The Ronald McDonald House relies 100% on donations to operate their facility. It serves families 365 days a year and is staffed 24 hours each day for the comfort and safety of their guests.
