RKV Associates are excited to learn that the ground breaking ceremony was held on September 28, 2011, for the new Ronald McDonald House in Columbia, MO.
As previously posted, the outstanding Associates of RKV Technologies generously gave during a fundraising drive in December 2010 to help the charity achieve their goal of raising $1.2 million. That is half of the charity’s goal for this project, but enough money to construct the main part of the house and one of the wings. When the additional $1.2 million is raised a second wing will be constructed.
