Dillard's to Donate more than $1.7 million to Ronald McDonald House Charities(R) (RMHC(R)) through Sale of Southern Living Ultimate Christmas Cookbook

Dillard's, Inc. (DDS: NYSE, "Dillard's") announced today that it will make a significant contribution of more than $1.7 million to local chapters of Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC). This donation was made possible through the sale of Dillard's exclusive Southern Living Ultimate Christmas Cookbook.

In 2010, Dillard's offered an exclusive, custom-edition Southern Living Christmas cookbook. This 288-page hardbound book is a go-to guide to the season with over 340 delicious recipes and hundreds of inspiring photographs and ideas to make the holidays memorable.

With this year's record-high contribution, Dillard's has donated over $7.6 million to Ronald McDonald Houses since 1994. Denise Mahaffy, Vice President, said, "Partnering with Ronald McDonald House Charities gives all of us at Dillard's an enormous sense of pride. We are honored to support the Ronald McDonald Houses in our communities."

"The families that RMHC supports derive strength from each other, volunteers, staff, corporate donors like Dillard's, as well as from Dillard's customers. This generous donation will go to support programs like our Ronald McDonald House® program which provides families a 'home away from home' while their child is receiving treatment at a nearby hospital allowing families to focus on what is most important, their child," said Marty Coyne, president and CEO, Ronald McDonald House Charities. "On behalf of the 12,100 children and families we serve every day through RMHC core programs, I thank Dillard's for this amazing contribution."
