Riverbend “potty passes” sold by the Courtyard and Residence Inn will once again benefit families helped by the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Chattanooga.

This year marks the sixth year the hotels have raised funds for the charity by selling the passes to Riverbend concertgoers.

“Volunteering to help with the potty passes at the Riverbend fundraiser has become a fun tradition for our volunteers each year,” Jane Kaylor, executive director of the local branch of Ronald McDonald Charities, said. “We, as a local children’s charity, have enjoyed this tremendous partnership with the Courtyard and Residence Inn by Marriott, which helps raise funds for key services that directly improve the health and well-being of children in our community.”

More than 80 volunteers will accept contributions for the “one timer” for $3, the “all nighter” for $5 or the “potty passport” for $60 for unlimited use of the hotel’s restrooms throughout the nine-day event June 8 through 16.


Money raised by the hotel throughout the event will be matched by McKibbon Hotel Management Inc., the owner and manager of the hotel.

Since 2006, more than $32,000 has been raised for the organization during Riverbend.
