Keith Wyse was asked to be a speaker on behalf of Ronald McDonald House Charities and as representatives of Agape Family Life House, the Wyse Family and the Bullis Family were invited to attend the fundraising event.
As you can see from the pictures, it was quite a gala affair with many wealthy people in attendance. We were originally told it was a picnic so we needn’t dress up. What a surprise when we arrived and saw the other guests. It would have been easy to have been embarrassed, but we all chose not to sweat the small things. After all, we were the invited speakers and representatives of Ronald McDonald House :>) .
