Empowering Utah's Youth: Ron McBride Foundation and Mighty Penguin Collaborate to Support At-Risk Children

Ron McBride is a treasured figure in the Utah community, having made an indelible mark during his tenure as head football coach at the University of Utah. Known for his congeniality and generosity, Coach Mac has dedicated his post-football life to supporting children in need, particularly those attending Title I schools, through his foundation.

At Mighty Penguin, we have the privilege of working with the Ron McBride Foundation, and we were thrilled to showcase our event planning expertise by managing their annual gala. From liaising with the event committee to curating items for the silent auction, our Mighty Penguin team pulled out all the stops to make the event a resounding success. We are proud to have contributed to making a positive impact in the lives of Utah's children.

In addition to event planning, we also support the Ron McBride Foundation's small paid staff with grant writing services. We recognize that hiring more full-time staff is not always feasible, and we take pride in offering our expertise to help organizations bridge the gap and achieve their goals. We are committed to making a difference, and we look forward to continuing to work with the Ron McBride Foundation and other organizations dedicated to making a positive impact in our community.
