Gulf Coast International Properties Agent Ruth Morency Partners with Ronald McDonald House Charities

NAPLES, FLORIDA | December 11, 2023 – Gulf Coast International Properties® Agent Ruth Morency recently hosted a fundraiser to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southwest Florida.

The Wednesday, December 6th Christmas Event at Gulf Coast International Properties 5th Avenue Naples office was co-hosted by Gretchen Bauer of BSwanky handbags. Guests were invited to bring a new, unwrapped toy for the children and siblings staying at Ronald McDonald House in Ft. Myers.

Among the many family programs offered by the non-profit, the 380+ Ronald McDonald House Programs throughout the country hold a cherished place in Ms. Morency’s heart, as she and her family stayed at the Ft. Myers House when her twin babies were undergoing urgent care after birth. Ronald McDonald House Charities are a home away from home that provide comfort, support, and resources to families who travel far from home for the medical care their child needs.

The well-attended event welcomed many GCIP clients and colleagues, and the generosity and good will of the season was in full swing.

Ruth Morency states, “I was thrilled by the turnout and generosity shown for this charity that is near and dear to my heart. Having Gretchen co-host was a wonderful addition to a magical night. We were so happy to shine a light on this incredible non-profit and share the mission of Ronald McDonald House Programs with clients and colleagues.”

A Naples resident for nearly 10 years, Ruth has an extensive background in International Business and Marketing. She has a loyal following of clients and is noted for her exceptional client care and philanthropic endeavors. Gretchen Bauer, Founder and CEO of BSwanky, is a passionate and fearless leader who embraces charitable giving as part of her DNA. Together the two women enjoyed a successful night bringing attention to this valuable local cause.
