This is the 21st Annual Children’s Festival with proceeds going to the Ronald McDonald House. The RMHC is a great organization that provides its services to those seeking healthcare in the greater Chattanooga area. The majority of those we serve reside in our home county of Hamilton County, or in counties in a 4-state area within a 75-mile radius of Chattanooga. However, the excellent healthcare in our area attracts patients from areas of the U.S. as well as occasionally from foreign countries. We are honored to be their “home away from home.” Patients must be age 0-21. Eligibility is based on the severity of the patient’s condition and how far the family travels to receive medical treatment. Critically-ill patients and cancer patients are given priority. One room per family is provided unless the parents are divorced. Families are asked to make a $10 donation per night or do a household chore to help contribute to the operating needs.
Please plan to attend this great event this weekend. This Home is a wonderful part of Chattanooga and what we can offer those less fortunate.
