McHappy Day 2007

I’ll be putting on the apron and selling a few Big Macs tomorrow.

No, it’s not a way of supplementing my income. I won’t even be getting paid.

Tomorrow is McHappy Day, an annual event that raises funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities to help seriously ill children live happier, healthier lives.

Each year local media, sporting, political and community personalities are asked to get involved by serving behind the counter or collecting money from those in the restaurants. I’ve helped out at McHappy Day several times in the past but I haven’t done so in the last few years.

I’m certainly no celebrity but it’s nice to be asked to help out as part of my work at 98.5 Sonshine FM.

From 10 to 11 tomorrow morning I’ll be at McDonalds in Midland on the corner of Lloyd Street and Great Eastern Highway, so if you’re in the area please drop in and say hello. They have a great McCafe if you want to drop in for a coffee.

I’ll be teaming up with my Friday morning guest, Jill Bonanno, so it should be a very entertaining time to be at Maccas. I’ll post some photos here after the event.
