SAN DIEGO — Have you been looking to get involved, trying to decide where to apply your time, talent and treasure toward a worthy cause? Being a part of your community means giving back. And there are some exciting opportunities and ways to contribute going on right now.

Chuck Day, President and CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego, joins our Laura Cavanaugh to talk about how the fundraiser is a great way for the community to come together to support families with children being treated for life-threatening conditions at local hospitals.  Each year, the Ronald McDonald House supports 14,000 family members of critically ill children, as a home away from home, providing lodging, hot meals or schooling for siblings. And to continue that mission, they rely on community support, including crucial support from volunteers and funds donated on Red Shoe Day on June 20th.

Ticket holders have a chance to win one of more than 1,000 prizes, including the guaranteed grand prize - winner’s choice between a dream house or up to $2.1 million.
