Ronald McDonald House Red Shoe Council Logo

Red Shoe Council of Tampa Bay is a group of professionals dedicated to supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities Tampa Bay and the families they care for at Ronald McDonald House.

Through fundraising, volunteerism and public awareness our goal is to spread awareness of the mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities Tampa Bay, which allows families to spend time with their child while they are receiving medical treatment.

Red Shoe Council members host and participate in volunteerism and fundraisers on both sides of the bay. The annual signature events include a Wine Tasting at Locale Market, Christmas in July, and the Cornhole Classic. Throughout the year this group participates in socials, serving RMHC families through the meal program, smaller fundraising events, and volunteering at the houses or RMHC Tampa Bay signature events.
