McDonald house opens

A grand opening celebration of the new Ronald McDonald House for San Diego will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 13 at the new house at 2929 Children’s Way.

The event will feature activities for the entire family, including a performance by Ronald McDonald, tours, live animals, face painting and a disc jockey.

Located atop a six-story parking garage across from Rady Children’s Hospital, the new 47-bedroom house quadruples the size of the current facility. It features a new Family Care Center open daily to anyone with a child in an area hospital. The center offers dining services, a computer lab, an arts and crafts room, a children’s play room, a teen center, a play yard, a faith room, outdoor play areas, laundry, day resting rooms and shower facilities.
