In partnership with McInnes Cooper, the Rug Hooking Guild of Newfoundland and Labrador (RHGNL) invited children who had been served by the Janeway Children’s Hospital to send in a drawing of their dreams in 2011. From these drawings, RHGNL has created a Hooked Mat Collage that will be hung permanently at Ronald McDonald House Newfoundland and Labrador. RHGNL invited various celebrities, children, and individuals throughout the province to participate in the rug-hooking project. RHGNL along with McInnes Cooper invited companies, municipalities and individuals to sponsor the hanging of the completed collage pieces with all proceeds will support Ronald McDonald House. Collectively, sponsors contributed an outstanding $25,000 in support of the project for Ronald McDonald House. Shown here at the presentation are some of the children who submitted drawings, members of McInnes Cooper and members of the guild. — Submitted photo
