An Exciting Partnership (Ronald McDonald House):
Leading up to the 2010 Holiday Season, the Ramada Edmonton Hotel & Conference Centre contacted Ronald McDonald House® Northern Alberta informing them they were selected as the recipient of the proceeds of their ‘Friends in Need’ Campaign. The campaign allocates $10.00 for every room booked at the Ramada over the holidays to their charity of choice and was extremely successful. Since then, this partnership has flourished and our associates have had the pleasure of providing meals for the kids and their families, donating toys and even assisting with cleaning the House. We have continued to involve Ronald McDonald House® with our Friends in Need program each year and have also done several fundraisers as part of Kindness Week each year. Ronald McDonald House® Northern Alberta is an amazing facility and we are so proud to do anything that we can to assist them in helping Children and their families!

The 2012 Friends In Need program
The Friends In Need program is an excellent way for the Ramada Edmonton Hotel & Conference Centre to give back to our communities and provide much needed support during the holiday season. Since the program started in 2000, Friends in Need has raised over $1,000,000 in support of local charities.
In 2012 the Ramada Edmonton Hotel & Conference Centre will be donating $10 from all rooms booked during the holiday season
Each year the Ramada Edmonton Hotel & Conference Centre participates in Kindness Week, through community involvement reaching out to those who support our community in various ways:
