Supporting a Home Away From Home at #RMHC

June 24, 2015

Earlier this month, I was privileged to participate in and support the 10th Annual Marsh-Hudson National Golf Tournament benefitting Ronald McDonald House® New York, along with several of my colleagues and clients.

Left to right: JP McAleer, Executive Director, Morgan Stanley; Sudhir Kalra, Executive Director, Morgan Stanley; Keith Markowitz, Digital Realty Client Account Manager; Phil Meyers, Executive Director, Morgan Stanley; Joe Kiaer, Digital Realty Sales Director (I’m not in the picture, because I was the photographer!)

We were all honored and excited to support Ronald McDonald House (RMHC), which provides a temporary “home away from home” for pediatric cancer patients and their families. This organization does great work in supporting families managing and struggling with treating children with cancer. In addition to providing housing for a nominal fee of $35 per night, the organization coordinates emotional and physical services, psychological care, wellness programs, tutors, music, art, transportation, and activities for siblings, and provides camaraderie for parents struggling with their child’s cancer diagnosis.

Hearing about the challenges these families face was heart wrenching, yet at the same time upbeat. Kudos to all the great people and companies that support this worthy cause.

The event was held at the Hudson National Golf Club in Croton-on-Hudson, New York. This was Digital Realty’s seventh year participating in and sponsoring this event, which is widely attended by leading IT and infrastructure companies. In addition to being a worthwhile cause, it’s also a fun networking event.

My golf buddies (and clients) from Morgan Stanley asked me to include their comments about the event:

  • “We’re glad that the Digital Realty team rallied in support of Ronald McDonald House. A big ‘Thank You’ to Digital Realty! You guys rock!”
  • “This was an inspiring event and I’d do it again. I only wish Doricko had been wearing that fur hat of his with the ear flaps, and his purple suede shoes!”

This is just one of many causes supported by the Digital Realty team, who believe in the power of data and the power of our efforts to help worthy causes. Please join us in supporting Ronald McDonald House New York, or the Ronald McDonald House in your area.
