AmeriHealth New Jersey supports Ronald McDonald House Charities through sponsorship of the 10th Annual Change the Luck of a Child telethon

Cranbury, NJ, March 25, 2019 — AmeriHealth New Jersey is proud to sponsor the 10th annual Change the Luck of a Child Telethon, which will broadcast live on CBS 3 tomorrow, March 26. The annual fundraiser supports the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Philadelphia Region including the Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey.

“We are proud to have a longstanding relationship with the Ronald McDonald House Charities and are honored to be a part of this incredible event that supports families who are facing such difficult circumstances,” said AmeriHealth New Jersey Vice President of Sales Ryan Petrizzi.

Petrizzi will be answering phones during the telethon to collect donations on Tuesday, alongside AmeriHealth New Jersey colleagues. This is the second year the company will participate in the philanthropic event.

Last year, the Change the Luck of a Child Telethon raised over $1.1 million dollars to support the four local Ronald McDonald Houses, as well as a number of Ronald McDonald Family Rooms located in hospitals throughout the region and the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, which delivers diagnostic, preventative and restorative dental care at no cost to qualified children, aged one and up.
