Local McDonald’s sets record for McHappy Day


The totals have been tallied for McHappy Day and we’re thrilled to announce that local franchisee Jason Ammar, in Brandon, was one of the Top-5 fundraisers across Manitoba on McHappy Day!

Thanks to their efforts, and with the help of Canadians from every corner of the country, over $8.9M was raised for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Canada and various local children’s charities.

Jason Ammar says that the local community and media all came together to participate and help raise money for McHappy Day, leading to successful fundraising results for their store this year. “It was all a group effort and we wouldn’t have achieved these results without the help of everyone,” said Ammar. “It just shows how much McHappy Day means to people and how everyone can come together to support a great cause.”

McHappy Day has always been a cherished tradition in Canada, and this year was particularly special as McDonald’s Canada celebrated its 30th McHappy Day. If you have any questions or if you would like to schedule an interview with Jason Ammar, I’d be more than happy to arrange that for you.
