The DFK ANZ network has been supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities for many years. Located at major children’s hospitals, the Houses provide a safe, comfortable home away from home for families that have children receiving medical care.
Our closest House is Randwick, at the Sydney Children’s Hospital, and DFK Laurence Varnay provides support in a number of ways. Take a look at our recent activities below.
You can find out more about the Randwick House here.
Since opening in 1991, Ronald McDonald House Randwick (RMHR) has provided a home away from home for 32 families a night, every night. They also provide all the facilities that you would have at home, so families can travel light.
Home For Dinner
A team from DFK Laurence Varnay took part in the Ronald McDonald House Randwick’s ‘Home for Dinner’ on Thursday, 5 April 2018. A team of eight prepared, cooked and served dinner for families staying at the House that night. With a diverse menu consisting of roast chicken, beef sausages, salads, steamed vegetables and vegetarian carbonara, along with sides of fried rice and garlic bread – the families kept coming back for more! It was finished off with fruit platters, berry sorbet and ice-cream.

RBC Race for the Kids
On Sunday, 11 March 2018, DFK Laurence Varnay entered a team into the RBC Race for the Kids in support of Ronald McDonald House Randwick. Together, with the support of our staff, clients and personal friends, we raised just over $800.
The 2018 RBC Race for the Kids was supported by over 800 participants and raised over $110,000. The funds will be used by Ronald McDonald House Randwick to renovate their isolation unit and create a family sanctuary space.
