The Friends of the Ronald McDonald House invite you to Light a Luminary!
 Brighten your home and ours!

Luminaries have been a holiday tradition in Winston-Salem for 29 years! This project has helped shine a light on countless families in need and has raised over $2,200,000 to support the mission of the House.  Luminary kits are $7 each and contain 6 white bags, 6 candles, and sand.


All proceeds benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Winston-Salem.

Thank you to our generous sponsors!



Retail Locations:

Luminary kits will be available beginning November 23rd at the following local retailers:

  • ACE Hardware: Cloverdale and North Elm Street in Greensboro
  • Christie’s Hallmark
  • Dewey’s Bakery: main store and all holiday locations
  • Lowes Foods: all area locations
  • McCalls
  • Village Tavern

Luminary Captain Information:

As one of our largest fundraisers, we rely heavily on volunteer support to make the Luminary Project a success!  Our Street and Neighborhood Captains collect orders from their neighbors, pick up kits, and deliver the kits to their neighbors (or ask their neighbors to pick up kits from their home).

To become a Neighborhood or Street Captain for 2015. Contact Kimberlyn Edmundson, KimberlynE@rmhws.org or (336) 970-5659.
