Release from McDonald's
Topeka, KS – March 5, 2013 – Local Topeka McDonald’s Restaurants along with other McDonald’s Restaurants throughout Northeast Kansas hope to boost local education budgets tonight during the popular McTeacher’s Night. Tonight, March 5th, McDonald’s restaurants in Topeka and surrounding communities will donate proceeds from evening sales between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. to local education partners.
All levels – grade, middle, and high – and types – public, private, and parochial – of schools will be represented.
The annual McDonald’s McTeacher’s Night program kicked off in 2003, and was so successful that two McTeacher’s Night events have been held every year since; with the last McTeacher’s Night held in October. Once again, tonight, from 4 – 8 PM, local McDonald’s restaurants hope to raise additional money for local schools who are struggling with budget issues daily.
“The McTeacher’s Night program is fun, easy and very effective for schools, and fun, easy and greatly rewarding for McDonald’s Owners and Operators,” said Karen and Steve Tyler, local Topeka McDonald’s Owner/Operators. “It’s been a terrific way to give back to our local communities.” Partnering schools plan to promote the fundraiser by decorating McDonald’s restaurants with schools colors, distributing event flyers, utilizing school mascots, and holding attendance competitions between grades and classes.
