The McDonalds restaurant was packed from noon onwards. I was privilegedto be a part of a wonderful event. You might have seen me near the drive thru’s asking for your change and smiles. 🙂 Everyone was so generous in purchasing “boots” for the wall, balloons for the kids and simply taking your spare change and dollar bills and donating it to the cause.
One of the McDonalds employees Mark shared some great information with me today:
Hey Mike, Just thought I would share some numbers with you from Yesterday’s McHappy Day here in Milton. We raised $8294.00 for the Milton District Hospital Foundation & Ronald McDonald House Hamilton!!! That blows away last year’s total by over $2700!! We sold the most Happy Meal’s out of any of the 1400 McDonald’s stores in Canada for the 3rd year in a row! Hopefully I will have a solid number for donations across Canada by mid afternoon!
Thanks again for your Support! Hope to see you around town!
That total is awesome and thanks to Mark for posting that on my Facebook Page. (You can go there too, click LIKE and be informed of things that are going on in Milton that affect you.)
In addtion to myself, other local officials came out to help including Mayor Gord Krantz, Brian Penman, Greg Nelson, Rick Di Lorenzo, Arnold Huffman (and if Ive missed any Im sorry) as well as KISS 92.5FM Host (and local Miltonian) SCOTT FOX was there too. Scotts a trooper as hes always on the end of my jokes because of his boyish good looks 🙂
Lets keep up the good work Milton and hope that next years total is over $10,000!!!!
