Dollywood’s Splash Country hosts annual Ronald McDonald Day on Saturday, Aug. 26!
On Ronald McDonald Day at Dollywood’s Splash Country, the first 600 guests who mention this fantastic charity can purchase tickets for half-price.
End the summer with a splash and in the process support sick children and their families. Dollywood’s Splash Country and WIVK are partnering once again to raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Knoxville. Ronald McDonald House’s mission is to aid families with critically-ill children who are being treated in area hospitals. The first 600 guests who mention Ronald McDonald House at the water park before noon on Saturday, Aug. 26 will receive 50% off a regular or child admission ticket.
Ronald McDonald House of Knoxville
One-hundred percent of the funds raised from this special event benefit Ronald McDonald House of Knoxville. It serves as a home away from home for families during their time of treatment. Dollywood’s Splash Country General Manager Janet Dawson said,
“The Dollywood Company believes strongly in being a great community partner. As a water park, we look forward to our partnership with Ronald McDonald House every year. Splash Country is all about family time and that’s what Ronald McDonald House is trying to restore—they’re supporting families through tough times and trying to get them back to normalcy. What a great mission.”
Sue Beverly, Director of Ronald McDonald House added,
“Thousands of lives are impacted each year by the services we offer at our wonderful house—services that are a direct result of the loving support so graciously offered by our community and our friends at Splash Country.”
Since 2003, Dollywood’s Splash Country has donated more than $347,000 to the non-profit through special events, promotions and monetary donations.
