Andrew Bowyer and Middlefork Development, partners with Ballis Group and Coldwell Banker Previews International, made a donation to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana (RMHC) at an open house on December 4 at a newly constructed home located at 1705 North Dayton St. in Lincoln Park. Bowyer made the $2,500 check on behalf of everyone who attended the open house.
At the event, Bowyer and his family were joined by Coldwell Banker President and COO Fran Broude, Coldwell Banker City Regional Vice President Kathy Kalnes, and Elizabeth Ballis of Ballis Group to present the check to Allison Mabbot, senior communications manager of RMHC.
In addition, the Ballis Group donated $500 in toys to add to the Coldwell Banker sponsored Toy Room in the house. Through their charitable foundation, Coldwell Banker has had an ongoing partnership with RMHC since 2007.
