Men in Kilts raise 270K for charity

Posted:

It's the biggest fundraiser of the year for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Michiana.

All ELEVEN men in kilts gathered for a photo shoot Thursday. 

Among them -- FOX28's very own... Steve DuVal.

As you can see they got a chance to hang out with Ronald-who was also donning a kilt!

Then it was time for the main event called... "A Dazzling Evening of "Men in Kilts""

It was a celebration of all the weeks of fundraising these guys did.

Together they collected about 270-thousand Dollars!

Shelley Lesniewicz says, "We provide families with all the comforts of home, right inside the hospital," said Ronald McDonald House Charities' Shelley Lesniewicz. "So whether they need to take a shower, whether they need to stay overnight or just come and sit and have a cup of coffee with another mom, they're able to do all of those things."

"I got involved primarily because I saw what they did with so little and I saw that they touched over nine thousand families a year which is an incredible reach," said man in kilt Gregg Fore.

Gregg Fore raised more than 67-thousand dollars!

So he earned the title of "King of Kilts!"
