SPRINGFIELD, IL (December 18, 2014) – Vasanta Mushunuri , President of the Asian Indian Women’s Organization (AIWO), and other members of AIWO presented a $55,000 check to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Illinois (RMHCCI) on Wednesday, December 17. The money was raised through their recent 9th India Night held on November 14, 2014.
RMHCCI has been the beneficiary of this biennial event for the last 18 years.
“We cannot say thank you enough to the women of the Asian Indian Women’s Organization for all their hard work on organizing the India Night,” Kelly Thompson, Executive Director of RMHCCI, said. “Their generosity and support of our charity is truly amazing. The impact they have made over the last 20 years for us cannot be understated. We are so grateful for them.”
The Asian Indian Women’s Organization was a major part of the recent “Labor of Love” renovation and expansion project of the House. They are a founding member of the Children’s Healing Corner as well as the sponsor of one of the House’s guest bedrooms. Their donations from past India Night events also enabled RMHCCI to purchase a vehicle for the charity’s use.
