                   Taylor Hage, Homestead, Iowa, showed his steer in the 2007
                   Governor’s Charity Steer Show at the Iowa State Fair. The show
                   raises money for the Ronald McDonald Houses of Iowa.

                   Ryan Tedrow, a 12-year-old from Sioux City, was the celebrity that
                   showed Taylor’s steer. Ryan and his family have used the Ronald
                   McDonald House in Iowa City over 80 times while Ryan was
                   receiving treatments for a chronic medical condition.

                   Twenty-six steers were shown and sold this year, raising $118,125.
                   Since its inception in 1982, the show has raised almost $1.5
                   million for Iowa’s three Ronald McDonald Houses.

     intent of giving the money
    they earned to help children
                        in need.

        They donated ALL their
      earnings of $130.00 to the

      Thanks for thinking of us!

6                                  Iowa City Ronald McDonald House
               Annual Report

               President’s Message
               It has been my sincere pleasure to serve as your board chair for
               the past two years.

               The opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others,
               particularly at a most difficult time for families and their
               children, is something special that I treasure.

               It’s been an eventful two years filled with challenges and
               accomplishments including:

               •   Facilities expansion at the University of Iowa Children’s
                   Hospital created occupancy challenges for the House,
                   and some new opportunities. We are pleased to now be
                   a participant in orienting new pediatric employees at the
                   House, and to now be included in the hospital’s Enrichment
                   program, another opportunity to familiarize hospital
                   employees with the House.

               •   We have a new friendly, informative website:

               •   Many physical improvements and renovations were
                   completed including a renovated Great Room, library,
                   Guest Bathrooms, registration office, new carpeting for all
                   corridors and office, new washers and dryers, a new House
                   shuttle van, and the addition of a sixth suite.

               •   We expanded the breadth of our charter to advance our
                   core mission, the House, as we provide new grants and
                   scholarship programs for the benefit of deserving area youth.

               •   House finances remain solid.

               •   The House is blessed with a very talented volunteer corps, a
                   diligent, proud board, and a devoted staff.

               It has been an honor to have served this very special organization!
