“Our McHappy Day was a huge success this year, thanks to the generosity and support of the community!” said Revelstoke McDonald’s owner Cathy Blakely. The May 2 event at the local restaurant raised $5,407 for Ronald McDonald House in Vancouver.

Representatives from local organizations, businesses, community groups and even Revelstoke mayor David Raven donned aprons and helped out at the one-day effort to raise funds for the charity.

The facility provides a safe, secure home-away-from-home where out-of-town families with seriously ill children can stay while their children receive medical treatment in Vancouver at B.C. Children’s Hospital. The House provides a warm, welcoming environment where parents can relax, prepare hot meals and share their concerns with other parents in similar situations.

Currently, Ronald McDonald House Vancouver us endeavouring to build a new, larger home in Vancouver.
