Red Shoe Society

Our goal is to help young professionals make a difference by actively educating, promoting and inspiring them to engage in philanthropic endeavors and build awareness of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Washington, DC.


The Red Shoe Society (RSS) members range in age from 21-40. Opportunities for leadership, service and fundraising are available. If you’re interested in a leadership role in the Red Shoe Society, check out our Positions and Responsibilities.

Membership in the Red Shoe Society is $45 per year and provides an excellent opportunity to network with other young professionals while making a difference in the lives of those served by the RMHCDC. Your dues cover a small budget for fundraisers and RSS swag. Members are invited to attend several fundraising and service events throughout the year.

Red Shoe Society gathering at a Happy Hour event

Happy Hours: The Red Shoe Society partners with local restaurants and bars in the DC area to host Happy Hours. We do trivia, games, give away door prizes, and make Happy Hours fun for our participants. All proceeds from Happy Hours go back to support the families and children at the Ronald McDonald House. It’s always a fun event that you won’t want to miss out on!


Red Shoe Society event at ronald McDonald house

Spending time at Ronald McDonald House: The Red Shoe Society loves spending time at the Ronald McDonald House with the families. Once a month we cook a meal for the families to enjoy. We also plan enough food, for the Society to have dinner together as well. This is a fun way for us all to connect and get to know each other better. Not only do we cook for the families, but we also put together Grab-Go Bags and collect donations. The Grab-Go-Bags bags are so helpful, the families can take them to the hospital or grab them if they just want a quick snack. The Society also does crafts, pumpkin painting, gingerbread house decorating, baking, and other fun activities with the families.
