Valentine's Day Parents' Night In

On Valentine’s Day, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Memphis hosted a Parents' Night In event. The parents went to dining room A  where they were treated to a steak dinner with all the trimmings.  They were also treated to a special dessert and long stem red roses.  The steaks were donated by Charlie’s Meat Market and cooked by the Byhalia Lions Club. The Lions Club also provided and prepared the side dishes.

The kids were in dining room B.  They made their own heart-shaped pizzas, decorated cookies, enjoyed spin art, and created canvas hand art  to give to their parents.  They also visited with the Super Heroes. 

We cooked 60 steaks and 80 heart-shaped pizzas! We received many positive comments from the parents about how much they enjoyed the meal and spending time talking with other adults. The kids loved making their own pizzas and spending time with the Super Heroes.
