PRLog - Nov. 1, 2011 - WACO, Texas -- Glass Doctor raised $3,280 to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) during an auction at The Dwyer Group® 2011 Reunion held Oct. 19 – 22 at the Indianapolis JW Marriott.

Glass Doctor President Mark Dawson auctioned off decorations and props from the conference to franchise owners.

“We had just heard from a Ronald McDonald House® representative about ways to get involved with the Charity, and we were inspired,” Dawson said. “The results of the impromptu auction are a testament to the big hearts of the entire Glass Doctor team.”

Glass Doctor of Tulsa, Okla., owner John Vestring had the highest bid of $80 for a Glass Doctor banner. For a second banner, Marv Degerness of Glass Doctor of Fargo / Moorhead, Minn., paid $200. Larry and Holly Nieman of Glass Doctor of Central Arkansas received custom dice, hats and other props for their high bid of $2,000.

Following the Niemans’ impressive bid, Dawson offered to match the donation to $1,000 from the Glass Doctor corporate office, making the entire donation $3,280.

Glass Doctor and five of its sister companies in The Dwyer Group (Aire Serv® Air Conditioning and Heating, The Grounds Guys®, Mr. Appliance®, Mr. Electric® and Mr. Rooter®) are national supporters of RMHC. As part of their support, franchise owners continue to donate their services, labor and supplies to Ronald McDonald Houses in their respective service areas. The Ronald McDonald House program provides a home-away-from-home so families can stay close by their hospitalized child. The 309 Ronald McDonald Houses across the globe allow families to face the weight of an illness together.
