Lake Rudolph Resort Donates $$ to Charity
Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort in Santa Claus, Ind., has donated $6,300 to the Ronald McDonald House in Evansville, Ind.
Over the past three seasons of the Santa Claus Land of Lights at Lake Rudolph, the RV park has donated nearly $29,000 to Ronald McDonald House Charities in Evansville and Louisville, Ky., according to a news release.
Philip Koch, CEO/owner of Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort, presented the $6,300 check from the 2011 Christmas light show to Kathy Scheller, executive director of Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ohio Valley Inc.
“Since opening our doors in January of 2010, we have served over 2,700 critically ill children, their families and extended families from the entire tri-state,” says Scheller. “Without the continued support of wonderful organizations like Lake Rudolph, we would not be able to carry out our mission that has impacted so many.”
These donations are the result of a partnership between Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort and McDonald’s. Coupons for the Santa Claus Land of Lights were offered at various McDonald’s locations and a portion of proceeds was allocated to Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ohio Valley provides a comfortable and supportive environment for families with critically ill children. It also serves as a temporary residence near hospitals and medical facilities where family members can sleep, eat, relax and find support from other families in similar situations.

For the 2012 season the Santa Claus Land of Lights will be open from starting on Thanksgiving and then Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through Dec. 9. It will be open nightly Dec. 14 through New Year’s Eve, closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
