Making a Difference

Red Shoe Society is a young professionals’ organization dedicated to supporting the ever increasing fundraising and volunteer needs of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio. Members of the Society benefit by taking part in hands-on volunteer opportunities, serving in a leadership capacity, or through the various networking opportunities the organization provides.

Red Shoe Society events help raise funds for and promote Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio and their mission of Keeping families close®.

A Toast to The House:

This annual gala-like event helps celebrate the success of the Red Shoe Society & the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio.  We honor those who help bring us the success we give back to the House.  All proceeds made from this event are given directly to the House!

Dig It! for the House:

Good at volleyball? This event is just for you. Not so good at volleyball? This event is just for you. Teams go head-to-head in a bracket style tournament and compete for one thing – to make the biggest impact on the House. Area businesses have the chance to sponsor the big day to do their part to give back and be involved! UPDATE: Due to the pandemic, we have to skip holding this event for 2020. Sorry for the disappointment.

Go Red for RMHC:

Pick a day in October when your team will “go red” from wherever you and your teammates happen to be and challenge others to do the same while asking for donations from participants and those cheering on your team! It’s an easy and fun way to fundraise for RMHC of Central Ohio while safely distancing and/or wearing masks. Click here for details and to how to register your team!

Service Events:

Whether it’s a Saturday morning breakfast, a kitchen clean-up, or playing games with the families staying in the House – our Service Events are a great way to have more involvement within the House, while working with House Volunteers & families!


When it all comes down to it, fundraising is a crucial piece of Red Shoe Society. Every dollar raised is given directly to the House!
