Groundbreaking Thursday for Ronald McDonald house expansion

On Thursday, a ceremonial ground breaking event will take place at the Ronald McDonald House in Wauwatosa to commemorate the start of a $10 million construction project that will nearly double the size of the current facility.

Located at 8948 Watertown Plank Road across from the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center, the building currently has 38 rooms for families of hospitalized children receiving treatment at Milwaukee-area hospitals.

The Ronald McDonald House has raised $7 million through a capital campaign with the final $3 million to be raised over the next 18 months of construction. The expansion is expected to open in summer 2014.
