The Why Behind the Buy

The Sale is an exciting 4-day fundraising event hosted by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Rochester (RMHCR) that welcomes the Rochester community to partake in bargain shopping and learn more about our organization.

The Sale will sell a range of new and gently used items—from furniture and décor to clothing and sporting goods—all donated by the community and sold at bargain pricing. Proceeds from The Sale will go directly to RMHCR programs and services, which support the health and well-being of kids and families in the Rochester community.
