For events that result in travel over 40 miles, $.50 per mile will be included in the quote for miles beyond 40 miles
I am also a Christian, however I would only share my beliefs if you deem it appropriate.
Ron was a very jovial Santa. He went beyond the Ho Ho Ho to make kids feel comfortable.
Response from Santa Ron:
Thank you for the kind words. Merry Christmas. Santa Ron
I've known Ron for 30 years and therefore knew what to anticipate and he still exceeded my expectations. He arrived early for both parties and was the finale at our assisted living parties. He visited with the residents, passed our gifts, then stayed to further socialize with the residents and their families and to also pose for pictures. Nearly every resident received a hug from Santa. The majority of comments the next day were compliments about Santa. That night we scheduled him for next year's two parties.
Without a doubt, he is Santa.
Looks, attitude the whole package,and I swear I smelled gingerbread cookies.
Response from Santa Ron:
Thank you, to God be the glory!
Price Range: $75 - $150 per hour

What to Expect
Authentic, fun loving Santa that loves children and know how to interact with all ages.
"I have been with the CFA for 10 years now and you are undoubtedly the BEST SANTA we have ever had the pleasure of working with or meeting! The CFA office has received so many Thank You notes from our children and every one mentions you and what a fun Santa you are and could we please make sure we have you again next year. My hope is that you will join us again next year and that you know how much we appreciate you giving your time to help us give these children a special memory!!"
Terry Smyth, Executive Director, Craniofacial Foundation of America
"In over ten years of special events management, I have had the opportunity to work with numerous special characters. Santa Ron has by far been the most
professional, endearing and genuine Santa that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. In fact, guest response to Santa Ron has been so incredibly positive that the Zoo is committed to working with Santa Ron for all future holiday events."
Marisa Ogles, Director of Marketing and Communications, The Chattanooga Zoo
"My favorite moment is when Santa started to dance with a little girl while everything was quietening down. He didn’t have a large crowd, he just wanted to create a special moment for her. He was probably the best Santa I’ve ever encountered. It’d be impossible to count every time a kid looked at him and smiled in awe."
Blake Curtis, IT Specialist and Holiday Lights Guru, The Chattanooga Zoo
