Kilts for Kids: Supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities

Once again, Macrina Bakery is proud to participate in Kilts for Kids. Get a free drip coffee and cookie* at any of our locations when you show us your voting confirmation! 


Every year, the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) organizes various fundraising events to support the needs of children and their families. Among these events, Kilts for Kids stands out as a unique, engaging, and heartwarming annual fundraiser. Sporting kilts, participants invite voters to back their favorites with a $10 donation per vote. Since 2012, this high-spirited event has drummed up over $700,000, lending a vital lifeline to families who must travel to secure critical medical care for their children. Macrina leaped into the fray in 2019 after Manny Chao, Georgetown Brewery’s co-founder and avid RMHC supporter, extended an invitation. The more we uncovered about RMHC’s vital programs and services, the more interested we became. Their offerings range from Ronald McDonald Houses — a comforting haven for families with hospitalized children — to Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, providing a serene respite inside hospitals. Moreover, Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles deliver essential healthcare services to underserved communities. So, in 2023, we eagerly slipped into our kilts once more, snapping photos at our cafés and wholesale bakery. Since bribing people for votes is part of the game — and enriching our communities is as integral to our mission as making great bread and baked goods — we’re sweetening the deal by giving away a free coffee and cookie for every vote. Additionally, Macrina will make a matching donation for every employee vote. 

Vote between April 6-21: vote early and vote often! This is one kilt-raiser you can feel good about. From all of us at Macrina, thank you!
