La-Z-Boy Honored With RMHC Outstanding Stewardship Award 
Charity's Official Furniture Provider Saluted for Global Support;
Past Recipients Include Southwest Airlines, McDonald's Corp. and The
Coca-Cola Company 
OAK BROOK, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 08/28/13 --   La-Z-Boy was honored
last week at the Ronald McDonald House Charities(R) (RMHC(R))
International Conference as the 2013 recipient of the RMHC
Outstanding Stewardship Award. Through this Award, the
family-centered nonprofit recognizes corporations whose commitment
and support exceeds expectations in helping to support the mission of
the Charity.  
La-Z-Boy began its support of RMHC in 2008 with the donation of
furniture to RMHC Chapters in the USA and Canada. Since then, the
company has increased its support extending its donation to RMHC
Chapters in Australia, New Zealand and Asia Pacific. With the
donation of over 5,000 pieces of furniture to date, the Company and
its network of owners have been an integral part of the Charity's
ability to provide comfort, care and compassion to families and their
children through the Ronald McDonald House(R) and Ronald McDonald
Family Room(R) programs.  
"We are very proud to honor La-Z-Boy whose unwavering commitment to
RMHC families extends even beyond generous financial support and
product donation to the promotion of our cause among their employees,
Furniture Galleries(R) and customers," said Sheila Musolino, chief
operating officer of RMHC. "La-Z-Boy is vital to our ability to
ensure that families dealing with the medical crisis of a child are
able to stay together so their child can heal better and cope
faster." 
RMHC selects and formally recognizes a corporate donor for their
extraordinary contributions to the Charity and its local Chapters at
this conference which hosts over 1400 RMHC staff, board members and
volunteers from over 40 countries and regions. Previous recipients of
the Award include McDonald's Corporation(R), The Coca-Cola
Company(R), and Southwest Airlines(R). 
"It is hard to comprehend the level of stress, uncertainty and worry
families must feel when facing the illness of a child," said Kurt
Darrow, president and CEO of La-Z-Boy. "Our commitment to RMHC goes
beyond the furniture we provide. It extends into the local
communities, through
 fundraising and volunteering activities. We are
honored to be associated with such a remarkable organization. We are
grateful to know that, every day, we are able to provide comfort to
RMHC families so they can stay focused on helping their children
recover."
