Buy a Big Mac next Wednesday and help support the kids and their families of Reach Child and Youth Development Society.
The South Delta community will come together at Ladner and Tsawwassen McDonald’s restaurants on Wednesday, May 8 for McHappy Day, which will once again support children and youth with special needs.
For more than 10 years, proceeds from McHappy Day in South Delta have benefitted Reach Child and Youth Development Society.
This year, McDonald’s owner/operator Steve Krawchuk has expanded the fundraising with a giant TV raffle at both Ladner and Tsawwassen McDonald’s locations. Tickets are $5 and can now be purchased in store until 7 p.m. on May 8.
As in previous years, McHappy Day will feature visits from Delta council members, Delta firefighters and police officers, and guide dogs.
Local musicians, including Mike and Emile Greene, Holly Elementary school choir, Southpointe Academy jazz band and choir, will be performing. Students from Deas Island Dance, O’Brien School of Irish dance and young Greek dancer Haris are also volunteering their time to entertain at the event in support of Reach, while Reach staff and volunteers will be on site all day and encourage everyone to come out and enjoy the entertainment as well as face painting and children’s crafts.
One dollar from each McDonald’s hot drink, Big Mac or McHappy meal menu item will be donated to the charity on McHappy Day.
