HAVRE DE GRACE, Md. (June 15, 2009) ? For the third year in a row, homeowners at The Residences at Bulle Rock, the resort-style community being built around the five-star Bulle Rock Golf Course, have raised $10,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Baltimore, Inc.
“The residents at Bulle Rock have encircled Maryland’s Ronald McDonald House families with their consistent generosity,” said Marianne Rowan-Braun, president and CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Baltimore, Inc.
“Though these may not be the best of times for many of us, it is those within our Home who face the worst of times,” Rowan-Braun added. “I am immeasurably grateful for the integral role the residents at Bulle Rock have provided as we collectively support these brave little people.”
The Bulle Rock residents raised the money by purchasing passes to the McDonald’s LPGA Championship, occurring last week at the Bulle Rock Golf Course.
“Having the continued support of the Bulle Rock community and its residents has been a tremendous asset to the success of the tournament,” said Peter Wilder, director of business development for the McDonald’s LPGA Championship. “Working together to benefit The Ronald McDonald House of Baltimore has reinforced our mission of helping children and their families live happier lives.”
“We are extremely proud that our residents continue to give back to help the community,” said Brenda Desjardins, a spokeswoman for The Residences at Bulle Rock, noting that in addition to raising money for Ronald McDonald House Charities during the past three years, the Bulle Rock residents have helped raise over $21,000 for The City of Havre de Grace and the Susquehanna Hose Company.
The funds, which were used to purchase new emergency equipment, were raised at the 1st and 2nd Annual Bulle Rock Turkey Trot 5K events. The 3rd Annual Bulle Rock Turkey Trot will occur Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 26, 2009.
