McDonald’s is hosting Eggs for Education, a scholarship fundraising event. During the week-long event, all participating Southern Nevada restaurants will donate $1 from every Egg McMuffin and Sausage McMuffin with Egg, a la carte sandwich, and Extra Value Meals purchased locally.
Funds raised will benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Las Vegas scholarship program.
Dozens of community leaders, local politicians, and entertainers will volunteer their time to visit and greet customers at local restaurants while raising donations for the scholarship program. The volunteers are encouraged to push out social messages tagged with #EggsForEducation throughout the week to help raise additional donations for their store in a friendly competition. A golden egg trophy will be awarded at the end of the week to the guest that raised the most money.
Over the past five years, local McDonald’s owner/operators have raised over $270,000 with an annual event, formerly named Green for Grads. Since the RMHC of Greater Las Vegas Scholarship Program was established in 1999, local McDonald’s owner/operators have helped award more than $3.3 million in scholarships to high school seniors in Clark and Nye counties.
Last year’s scholarship fundraiser event resulted in a total of $42,000 in donated scholarship funds.
Southern Nevada’s McDonald’s franchisees are proud to give back to the community they serve. Local McDonald’s owner/operators support a variety of programs that focus on education, literacy, and the well-being of children including, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Las Vegas and Make Activities Count Grant program.
