We are gonna ROCK THE HOUSES on March 7, 2020
Each year, families and businesses from the Memphis area partner with FedEx Pilots' Wives Association in our decades-long mission of serving families facing childhood illness at both FedExFamilyHouse and the Ronald McDonald House of Memphis. This year we've added mobile bidding, which means you can bid on Silent Auction items while enjoying everything Rock the Houses has to offer. Snap the perfect halo-lighted photo booth pic, score a killer bottle of wine at Winery Way, grab a few discounted gift cards at Restaurant Row, and take a spin on the CMOM Carousel, all while keeping tabs on your favorite Silent Auction items via phone! Dinner will feature delicious food stations catered by Pink Flamingo and we'll have plenty of beverage tickets available for purchase. After dinner, we'll dig into the Dessert Auction, get competitive at the Live Auction, and might just bust a move on the dance floor! To buy tickets go to www.rockthehousesmemphis.com
Recently our President, Amber Abney, had the opportunity to go on a local television program called Inspiring Leaders through GHSTV, representing our organization and to highlight our big auction coming up. Sandra Lewis with FedExFamilyHouse and Malayna McGhee with Ronald McDonald House of Memphis joined her to talk about these two fabulous houses!!
Decorating for the Holidays at FedExFamilyHouse and the Ronald McDonald House
The FedEx Pilots' Wives recently brought a little Christmas Cheer to the families spending the holidays at the FedExFamilyHouse. The members completely transformed both buildings by decorating 15 trees, wreaths, and stockings on each family's door, poinsettias on each table, garland on the staircases and a wreath and stockings on the fireplace. They placed a full-size sleigh in the lobby that they filled with toys the children can choose from. Their donations all funded the exterior lighting of both buildings in the holiday spirit. The parents are so happy to be able to give their children a little bit of the holiday season when they are so far from home.
The Ronald McDonald House does things a little different, and many companies from around the city sponsor one of the dozens of trees at the House. Each year, some of our FEPWA members decorate the tree that is found in the room sponsored by FEPWA, the Teenagers room.
FEPWA Invades the Ronald McDonald House for Halloween
On October 3, the ladies of FEPWA descended on the Ronald McDonald House of Memphis with Halloween decorations and candy in hand. An annual tradition, our organization brings a little spooky to the children and families at RMH. Click here to see more pictures from the day and our monthly "On a Roll" Campaign.
