South Delta musicians will support children and youth with special needs when they perform on McHappy Day, Wednesday, May 3, at Ladner and Tsawwassen McDonald's restaurants.
Local musicians, including Mike, Em and Lucy Greene, The Jpegs (Jenny Lundgren and Peg Keenleyside), Holly Elementary senior choir, Southpointe jazz ensemble and Treble Titans choir, have volunteered their time to entertain at the event in support of Reach Child and Youth Development Society.
In addition, fresh from their performance at the Reach for the Stars Gala, the May Days Choir, including singers with autism, will perform at Ladner McDonald's during the dinner hour.
New for this year's McHappy Day, there is a raffle to win two iPads. Tickets, at $5 each, are on sale in Ladner and Tsawwassen McDonald's restaurants now, with all proceeds benefitting Reach. One iPad 2 Air will be awarded at each South Delta restaurant at 6 p.m. on May 3.
Reach has been helping children with special needs for over 50 years and serves close to 1,000 children annually with developmental disabilities. South Delta McHappy Day proceeds have been donated to Reach for the past 10 years, including $9,332 last year.
As in previous years, Delta council members, local firefighters, police officers and BC Guide Dogs will all take part in the fundraiser.
