Côte Saint-Luc mayor and councillors to take part in 2017 McHappy Day

Mayor Mitchell Brownstein, Councillor Mike Cohen and others members of city council and staff will volunteer at the two McDonald’s franchises in Côte Saint-Luc on Wednesday, May 3, 2017 as part of the cross Canada McHappy Day initiative.

The day will also mark the launch of the Pierre Brunet McDonald’s Parks and Recreation Bursary Fund. Details of the fund, including application forms, will be announced towards the end of the summer.

“We encourage residents to drop by and make a contribution,” Mayor Mitchell Brownstein said. “The donations at the two local McDonald’s will stay in Côte Saint-Luc, thanks to the new fund. It will help families who cannot afford to register their child in a program. It will also take into account requests from children with special needs.”

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. 

“Pierre Brunet has been a supporter of community activities in Côte Saint-Luc for many years,” said Councillor Mike Cohen, who is responsible for the Sponsorship portfolio. “We’re very excited that through his efforts, more kids in our community will have a chance to participate in recreation programs.”

Brunet operates 19 McDonald’s franchise on the Island of Montreal, including the two restaurants in Côte Saint-Luc. He was honoured in 2016 by the City of Côte Saint-Luc at annual Golf Classic for his continued generosity to community events over the past 30 years.
