BALTIMORE The McDonald’s Family Restaurants of Baltimore continues their commitment to children’s well-being with a special city wide McTeacher’s Night fundraiser event. Members of Baltimore City schools and communities gathered at 16 Baltimore City community McDonald’s restaurants on Tuesday, November 10th for a dinner celebration while earning a portion of all sales. McDonald’s matched the amount raised and will be donating $9,000 to support education excellence and innovation in Baltimore City schools.
For over 33 years, the 135 Greater Baltimore area McDonald’s restaurants have worked closely with their community schools and donates over $75,000 annually for scholastic fundraising efforts. McTeacher’s Night celebrations support local schools, PTA organizations, Booster clubs, athletic teams and academic clubs through a donation of the percentage of sales from the event. McTeacher’s Night events are full of school spirit and energy, where Teachers and Administrators have been known to get into the fun by working behind the counter serving McDonald’s world famous Hamburgers and French Fries! In addition to the McTeacher’s Night events, McDonald's honors Maryland's twenty-four Teachers of the Year as the official sponsor of the Teacher of the Year Annual Cruise and the Teacher of the Year Gala.
