Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Las Vegas Award $263,830 to Local Students
On May 15, the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Las Vegas awarded $173,830 to 153 high school graduates. $90,000 was also awarded to 90 returning college students as part of the RMHC Alumni Scholarship program (Pictured: RMHC Scholarship Recipients)

This year every applicant who applied to the alumni program was awarded an individual scholarship, a milestone for the RMHC Scholarship Program.

Eva Martin, a local McDonald’s owner/operator personally committed to the funding of 18 scholarships through the James and Eva Martin Charitable Trust which amounted to $30,000. This generosity helped ensure even more local students were given the opportunity to make their higher education dreams come true. Since 2002, Southern Nevada McDonald’s owner/operators have contributed $1.7 million to the RMHC scholarship program.

From April 4-8, McDonald’s restaurants across Southern Nevada successfully raised $50,000 for the RMHC scholarship program during its week-long Eggs for Education fundraiser. Dozens of community leaders, local politicians, and entertainers volunteered their time to visit and greet customers at local restaurants while raising donations for the scholarship program.

The RMHC scholarship program is designed to provide financial assistance to eligible graduating high school seniors who face limited access to educational and career opportunities. Since 1999, the RMHC Scholarship Program has awarded more than $3.8 million to students from Clark and Nye Counties in Nevada.
