McHappy Day May 3 will mark launch of new Fund in CSL

A few months ago Pierre Brunet, the absolutely wonderful man who operates 19 McDonald's restaurants in Montreal, approached me and Harold Cammy of our Parks and Recreation Department. McHappy Day will take place one again in May and for the two Côte Saint-Luc locations - Quartier Cavendish and the CSL Shopping Centre - Pierre suggested we come up with an idea where the proceeds could be directed.

McHappy Day is a national fundraiser when McDonald's restaurants across Canada and their communities, employees, customers and special guests raise money together to help children in need. At the heart of McDonald’s community commitment is RMHC Canada, which is dedicated to giving sick children the one thing they need most: their families by supporting Ronald McDonald Houses and Ronald McDonald Family Rooms across the country. RMHC provides families of sick children with a home-away-from-home or a place of peace and calm within a hospital. 
Mayor Mitchell Brownstein, members of city council and  our staff will volunteer at the two McDonald’s franchises in Côte Saint-Luc on Wednesday, May 3, 2017, which  will also mark the launch of the Pierre Brunet McDonald’s Parks and Recreation Bursary Fund. This is something Harold and I have been talking about for a few years now - helping families who cannot afford to register their child in a program and taking into account requests from children with special needs.
While details of the fund, including application forms, will be announced towards the end of the summer,  I am already pleased to say that we will connect this to our annual Golf Classic on July 6 and the CSL Men`s Club will be pitching in with their own donation as well.
So please mark May 3 on your calendar and  join us at McDonald`s. Pierre Brunet has been a supporter of community activities in Côte Saint-Luc for many years. We’re very excited that through his efforts, more kids in our community will have a chance to participate in recreation programs.
Continuons la tradition dans les restaurants McDonald’s

Le Grand McDonMD, notre plus ancienne activité de collecte de fonds d'envergure nationale avec plus de 1 400 restaurants McDonald's du Canada, rassemble pas seulement les employés mais aussi les clients, les fournisseurs et les amis dont le seul but est d’appuyer des organismes locaux de bienfaisance et amasser des fonds pour les enfants dans le besoin.

Cette année nous continuons la tradition dans les restaurants McDonald’s de Pierre Brunet.

Le mercredi 3 mai, vous êtes invités à épauler son équipe lors de cet événement extrêmement important et offrir votre soutien lors du Grand McDonMD  au restaurant situé au 7003, Chemin de la Côte-St-Luc.

Lors de cette journée spéciale vous soutenez la fondation « Pierre Brunet McDonald’s Park and Recreation Bursary Fund ». Cette fondation nouvellement créée aura pour objectif d’aider les familles qui n’ont pas les moyens d’enregistrer leurs enfants à des activités en prenant en considération ceux qui nécessitent des besoins particuliers.
