Project Overview

Since 1985, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Austin and Central Texas (RMHC-ACT) has provided services to thousands of families whose children are seeking treatment at Austin-area hospitals. As part of the worldwide Ronald McDonald House Charities, RMHC-ACT is committed to helping families of critically ill or injured children, giving them a place to rest, eat and share experiences with families of other children in similar situations.

The Sun Club was proud to help this amazing new facility achieve LEED Platinum certification thanks in part to the donated solar array. It was a natural fit for this healthy home away from home for thousands of families and children seeking medical treatment at the Dell Children’s Medical Center next door. All the funds saved from the array go right back into their heartfelt mission to assist these families during very difficult times.
