Ready for McHappy Day: Gabby Reynolds, Grant Smith, Fran Mclaughlan and Ben Johnson.LOCALS are being asked to get behind McHappy Day on October 17 to raise money for a range of programs that help seriously ill children and their families.
This year McHappy Day is aiming to raise a record breaking $3.4 million for Ronald McDonald House Charities which equates to providing a bed for about 25,000 nights for Australian families at one of the 16 Ronald McDonald Houses across Australia.
Collie McDonalds licensee Grant Smith said they would be hosting a variety of events to raise money.
“We will donate two dollars from each Big Mac and Happy Meal sold on the day,” he said.
“Apart from that, there will be a band playing, raffles, face painting and fairy floss.”
Bunbury Batman will also be making appearance, while in the silent auction people can bid a framed signed jersey by the victorious Australian World Cup Cricket Team.
The South West accounts for 45 per cent of Ronald McDonald house intake, further adding to the importance of the cause.
“We look forward to having the local community get down on McHappy Day to help raise funds to support Ronald McDonald House Charities and the brilliant work that it does for seriously ill children and their families,” Mr Smith said.
“Along with the usual fun that comes with McHappy Day, this year the local community will also be able to purchase the Ronald Socks as a new fundraising initiative for McHappy Day.
“It’s a fun way for everyone to get involved.”
