Akron, OH – The McMillen family is proud to announce their return as title sponsor of the second annual local Ronald McDonald House (RMH) Sporting Clays Classic, Pulling Together for Kids (PTFK), which benefits the Akron Ronald McDonald House. The sold out event will take place September 12, 2015 at the world-class Hill ‘n Dale Club in Medina, OH.Shade McMillen, Vice President of H&M Metal Processing said, “Our family is honored to host this event benefitting the local Ronald McDonald House. Participant involvement this year increased by 25 percent and we plan to grow this event. We challenge our peers, both local and across the country, to play a part in supporting this tremendous cause.”
Coordinated and managed by the Friends of Ronald McDonald House of Akron, the event directly supports RMH’s operational expenses, hosting families whose children are receiving care at Akron Children’s Hospital. The event is conducted in a Pro-Am format, with 24 participating teams led by professional volunteers from the Mid-West. Sponsorship opportunities are available at multiple levels.
The success of the inaugural PTFK in 2014 resulted in an invitation to affiliate with the national Kids and Clays Foundation. Kids and Clays® is a national non-profit organization that donates resources to RMH Sporting Clays events across the country. Since 1999, Kids and Clays Foundations affiliates, such as PTFK, have raised over $14 million dollars in support of the Ronald McDonald House Mission.
The McMillen family, owners of Akron based H&M Metal Processing, Rubber City Armory and Service Iron & Steel is supporting the RMH of Akron during a critical time, as the House begins its first major expansion to support increasing requirements. In 2014, the House served over 12,000 children and family members, however, significant growth is required to ensure all can be served.
