Old video games equal money for Ronald McDonald HouseValleyfair is hosting The Great Video Game Drive to collect games to help raise funds to support the mission of the Ronald McDonald House Charities, Upper Midwest.
It’s estimated that nearly $4 billion worth of used video games are sitting in homes, not being played. Valleyfair is hosting The Great Video Game Drive to collect games to help raise funds to support the mission of the Ronald McDonald House Charities, Upper Midwest.
Guests visiting Valleyfair July 16 and 23 are encouraged to bring new or used video games to receive a coupon for $7.00 off regular admission (limit one coupon per donation per person). Collected games will be recycled to a company that will pay cash to the Ronald McDonald House.
Funds raised will go towards the missions of the Ronald McDonald House. Over the past 32 years, the Ronald McDonald House has grown from serving hundreds of families per year to thousands through four “Core” programs – each supporting a specific aspect of their mission. They believe children heal faster and cope better when they are with their family. That hope and comfort provides something no medicine can offer.
Valleyfair is located 25 minutes southwest of the Twin Cities on County Road 101, just east of Shakopee, Minn. Guests can enjoy unlimited rides shows and Soak City Waterpark with daily admission or a season pass.
