McHappy Day partners with NONA

On Friday, proceeds from cookie sales at the local McDonald's will be donated to the North Okanagan Neurological Association

McHappy Day is spreading smiles a little early, with an addition to the annual fundraiser.

Since 1977, McDonald’s has hosted McHappy Day in May and has raised more than $41 million for Ronald McDonald Houses and local children’s charities across Canada.

“To continue our fundraising efforts so far, this year, on Friday, all of the proceeds from cookie sales at our three Vernon locations, plus the one in Armstrong, will be donated to our local charity for McHappy Day this year,” said Natasha Sellers, with the local McDonald’s restaurants.

“The charity we have decided to partner with for 2014 is NONA.”

The North Okanagan Neurological Association is a non-profit organization that believes every child has the potential for growth.

The agency offers support to families and caregivers of children who have a wide variety of developmental challenges in Vernon and the North Okanagan.

“Please help support our fundraising efforts and visit us on April 18 for a cookie or two,” said Sellers.

McHappy Day takes place at local McDonald’s restaurants May 7.
