The Tampa Bay Lightning players' wives are lending a helping hand to the Tampa Ronald McDonald House®. On Thursday, March 29 from 5-7 p.m., McDonald's and the players' wives are hosting a dinner for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House, a home away from home for pediatric families.

With a delicious menu, specially prepared by a host of Lightning ladies including Jodi Taylor, Heather St. Louis, Deb Pratt, Mary Jo Denis, Debbie Fedotenko, Monika Prospal, Chris Tortorella, Amber Esposito, Karin Perrin, Elaine Reese, and Kelly Mulligan, the evening will be fun-filled, warming the hearts of the families in need of support. Serving McDonald's Premium Roast Coffee, joining Ronald McDonald® and the Lightning's own ThunderBug, the evening's hosts hope to bring smiles to the special families in residence.

Please join the fun at 28 Columbia Drive, Tampa, Florida 33606-3584 at the Ronald McDonald House on Davis Island, as we try to raise awareness for Ronald McDonald Charities® of Tampa Bay, and its cornerstone program, the Ronald McDonald House.
