The Ronald McDonald House is a home away from home for families whose loved ones are undergoing medical treatment in Nashville.

Anchor Neil Orne broadcast live during Good Morning Nashville, while meteorologist Jared Plushnick did live reports on News 2 at 11 a.m.

Viewers have heard Neil and Jared talk about their friendly wager over their favorite baseball teams. Neil roots for the Red Sox, while Jared likes the Orioles.  The Orioles won the season series 10-9 and Jared challenged Neil to raise as much money as he could for a great local organization.
