The 23rd McHappy Day was an outstanding success in the North Okanagan.

On behalf of all of us at McDonald’s, I want to personally thank everyone in Vernon, Armstrong and Salmon Arm for helping to make the 23rd McHappy Day such an outstanding success.

On May 4, McDonald’s restaurants across the country joined together with our employees, our guests, our suppliers and other special guests to raise money to help children in need across Canada.

McHappy Day is a long-standing Canadian tradition and is at the heart of who we are and what we do at McDonald’s Canada. We’re there with families during their everyday moments, their celebratory moments, and through Ronald McDonald Houses, we’re there to help keep families together when they need it most.

The incredible generosity of our guests, the enthusiasm of our employees and the support of our special volunteers helped our restaurants support the activities of Ronald McDonald House of B.C. Their efforts directly impact the lives of children in need in our region every year, and we’re so proud to be able to provide them with some assistance.

We were thrilled with the incredible support from our customers, which enabled us to break our fundraising record this year.

Our staff and management teams were outstanding and I’m extremely proud of them.

This year, we were honoured to host two very special local VIPs that stayed at the Ronald McDonald House. Eli and Caleb, we truly appreciate your help May 4 and your energy and enthusiasm.

We hope you are as delighted as we are to be a part of this success. We look forward to continuing this special tradition in the years ahead.
