James McAvoy Braves A Blizzard

James McAvoy Braves A Blizzard

MDC is beyond grateful to actor JAMES McAVOY (star of hit films X-Men, Wanted, Atonement, Split and Sherlock Gnomes) for his recent visit to Ronald McDonald House New York. MDC spent months organizing this event, only to have plans derailed less than 24hrs before due to a crazy freak spring snowstorm which left 60 families stranded and unable to travel to Bryant Park Hotel. James braved the blizzard and spent the entire afternoon with the kids and their families, giving them a memory of a lifetime they will never forget. We are forever grateful to James for making the trip in such horrible weather and going out of his way to make these kids feel so special and loved. Thank you so much for having such a big heart and thanks to Paramount, Allied and 42West for making this day possible!!
