Ronald’s FANDEMONIUM


    On the afternoon of February 8th, 2013, the local McDonalds restaurant was dubbed a “Fandemonium”.  Ronald McDonald was present leading the audience in dancing, singing, cheering and generally turning the restaurant into Ronald's Olympic FAN VILLAGE. McDonald’s is striving to be the gathering place, the hub for our community and a place where Olympic fans gather to cheer on Canada's athletes. All the participants received a Fan Village Accreditation and official Olympic photo with Ronald.
    The 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, marks the 10th consecutive Games that McDonald's will be the Official Restaurant of the Olympic Games.  “To help celebrate our ongoing support for amateur sports and to bring the spirit of the Olympic Games to the restaurants, McDonalds is launching Ronald's Olympic ‘FANDEMONIUM’ Tour.”
    Participants attending ‘Fandemonium’ were treated to the Official Fan Village Accreditation area, a fun family photo area, trivia and activity games, McDTV, VIP interviews, prizes and of course Ronald McDonald himself who hosted the event. 
    Colleen Zimmerman, Office Administrator, Sophina Restaurants (McDonald’s) remarked, “One of the kids that won the Ultimate Fan Pack (Owen) was so excited!  He and his mom had been in the restaurant since noon, and he truly is the ultimate Ronald fan.”  
    About McDonald’s and the Olympic Games: 
    McDonald’s commitment to the Olympic Movement began in 1968, when the company airlifted hamburgers to U.S. athletes in Grenoble, France, after they reported being homesick for McDonald’s food. Since then, the company has served its menu of choice and variety to millions of athletes, their coaches, families and fans.  Sochi 2014 marks the tenth consecutive Games with McDonald’s as the Official Restaurant, serving Olympic athletes and fans at the Games.
    Supporters can send personalized messages and good luck wishes to their favorite athletes and teams competing in Sochi by using the hashtag #CheersToSochi on Twitter or visiting www.cheerstosochi.com. The cheers will be shared at a special display in the Athletes’ Village in Sochi, where athletes can view and print these messages onto ribbons to wear around their wrists. Athletes may even tweet their appreciation back to lucky fans. . McDonald’s states, “This Olympic experience gives fans the ability to make personal connections with athletes in Sochi in a way they’ve never had before.”
