CORT Austin recently teamed up with Texas Rangers affiliate, Round Rock Express, to refresh a room in the Ronald McDonald House in Austin, Texas. The Ronald McDonald House provides a place for families to sleep, eat and relax while their children receive medical treatment at one of the area’s nearby hospitals. CORT donated all of the furniture to finish the room, while Round Rock Express provided a complete baseball themed decor. Ronald McDonald House employees have said the room is by far their favorite in the entire house and predict there will be strong competition among families to determine who will stay there! CORT Austin and the Round Rock Express have worked together for a number of years. Both CORT Austin and Round Rock Express are very active in the local community and frequently work together to support local efforts like the Ronald McDonald House.

CORT Austin combines its love of children, animals and sheer competition to help raise $20,000 for Dell Children’s Hospital and $6,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charities. At the Service to Mankind (SERTOMA) 4th of July Central Texas Great Rubber Duck Race, 8,100 rubber ducks gather to race and raise money for a great cause. CORT Austin was the title sponsor for this third annual event. Each rubber duck is “adopted” as part of the fundraising efforts. In addition to the race, CORT rallied around a full day of activities to raise funds and awareness for Dell Children’s Hospital.
