Indians Wives Association prepares meal for families at Ronald McDonald House
Several members of the Cleveland Indians Wives’ Association took time out of their day on Thursday to cook lunch for families at the Ronald McDonald House in Cleveland.
(And don’t worry: The wives took a few quick breaks to #VoteKluber, too, as Tribe pitcher Corey Kluber was in the running for the final spot on the AL All-Star team.)
The 55 families currently living at the Ronald McDonald House – which supports the families while a loved one is undergoing treatment — enjoyed a buffet-style lunch of pasta and meatballs, salad and rolls, donated by Delaware North Companies. Residents raved about the chocolate chip cookies the wives baked to perfection—some soft and some a little well-done.
In the middle of their visit, one special resident, 6-year-old Yan Perez, ran into Jenna Gomes. Little Yan represented the Ronald McDonald House to threw out the ceremonial first pitch on Sunday, when he was able to meet his favorite player, Yan Gomes. (For more details, click here.)
His two worlds collided on Thursday, as he was relaxing in his home away from home and talking baseball with Jenna.
