The Red Shoe Crew is a group of caring, civic minded individuals asking for your donations to support families that are facing the nightmare of having a critically sick or injured child. They are dedicated to the programs and mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities® of the southwest.
$1 = 1 VOTE!The Red Shoe Crew Member that raises the most money will be crowned as the King or Queen at the Red Shoe Shindig. Each Red Shoe Crew Member will also be eligible to win for helping spread the word about RMHC.
The Heart & Sole Award will be given to the Red show Crew member, or team, who made the biggest positive impact on the community during the campaign. Using outreach, events, education and friend-raising, this new addition to the Red Shoe Shindig is a reflection of appreciation for Keeping Families Close by creative means.
Lauren Matter is thrilled to be a part of raising money for one of her favorite organizations. The Ronald McDonald House is near and dear to her heart since some good friends stayed at one while their premature baby boy was fighting for his life at a nearby hospital. She has seen firsthand what a miracle the Ronald McDonald House is for families. She can’t wait to raise money to help more families here on the South Plains.
Lauren anchors KAMC News at 5, 6 and 10. She’s been here for 5 years and says Lubbock has become home. Before coming to KAMC, Lauren anchored in Missouri, Indiana and started her career in Abilene. During her time in Abilene she fell in love with West Texas and is so happy to be back.
Lauren loves to give back. She is involved with many organizations around town including Make A Wish, High Point Village, Susan G. Komen, Live Oak MOPS and many more.
Lauren is married to her high school sweetheart Laryen, a Realtor at NextHome CORE Realty. They have a son Howie who will turn 3 in January! He is the light of their lives!
When she’s not bringing you your evening news, she enjoys working out, travelling to see family and friends, being home with her family and trying out new restaurants.
Angela and her husband, Ron Sawall, have been involved in many charities in Lubbock including the American Heart Association, National Kidney Foundation, Parkinson’s Society, and Junior League of Lubbock. JLL is where she learned about the Ronald McDonald house and the wonderful services that they offered.
These days Angela fills her time helping out in the community where she can and hanging out with Pie, her cat, and Mooshu, her pug. With the extra time that retirement has allowed, Angela is thinking about writing another cookbook.
