Erynn and Gabe Filkey
Years ago, Gabe Filkey's young cousin faced a terrible diagnosis. Battling what was expected to be terminal leukemia, he endured months of treatment. His parents were by his side throughout, staying at a nearby Ronald McDonald House. The story had a happy ending: After 18 months, his cousin beat his cancer and returned home to his family.
"It's the best-run charity I've ever worked with." —Gabe Filkey
Many years later, Gabe sought a meaningful way to give back to his community. Knowing how urgently important it is to keep families close during a medical crisis, he chose San Diego's Ronald McDonald House. He and his wife, Erynn, wanted to lighten the load of worried and exhausted families. So first, they donated the Filkey & Associates Coffee Bar in our dining room. Then, they funded the Filkey & Associates Restorative Spa Showers, used thousands of times each year by family visitors.

After several years of increasing involvement with the House, Gabe says with confidence, "It's the best-run charity I've ever worked with." Erynn and Gabe now are Charter Members of the Many Hearts Legacy Society. According to Gabe, they continue to give to our Ronald McDonald House, because "every dollar changes lives."
We invite you to become a Charter Member of the Many Hearts Legacy Society, leading the way towards our future. The last day for Charter Membership is Oct. 15, 2019!
