Campbell River’s McDonald’s raised more on McHappy Day than any other across the country

The mayor heaped praise Monday night onto Campbell Riverites for their generous and giving natures.

Mayor Andy Adams revealed to council that because of the community’s efforts, Campbell River McDonald’s raised more than any other McDonald’s restaurant in Canada during McHappy Day on May 3.

“I got a note from Jens and Mary Rolinski, the owners of the Campbell River McDonald’s and they sent their appreciation and said I thought I would let you know that we hit our goal and raised over $80,000 which is the highest in Canada,” Adams said.

The mayor and city councillors, as well as local firefighters and other local ‘celebrities’ were on hand during McHappy Day to help serve the public.

For every Big Mac, hot McCafé beverage and Happy Meal sold, $1 of the proceeds was donated to the charities. In the end, the downtown restaurant raised $80,276 which will be shared between Ronald McDonald House and the Campbell River Hospital Foundation.

Adams said this year, Campbell River McDonald’s out did themselves.

“This was a goal for the Campbell River McDonald’s to break the B.C. record, or be the highest in B.C., but they were the highest in the country,” Adams said. “So congratulations to McDonald’s and also congratulations to the community that continues to amaze me with their financial contributions and support.”
