McDonald’s is hosting Eggs for Education, the annual 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 that are purchased locally (Pictured: Nevada Pageant winners at McDonald’s).
Funds raised will benefit the 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 using the hashtag #EggsForEducation throughout the week to help raise awareness for the event.
Over the past five years, local McDonald’s owner/operators have raised over $320,000 in scholarships funds as a result of the annual event, formerly named Greens for Grads. Since the RMHC of Greater Las Vegas Scholarship Program was established in 1999, local McDonald’s owner/operators have helped to award more than $2.1 million in scholarships to high school seniors in both Clark and Nye counties.
Last year’s Eggs for Education fundraiser event generated a total of $50,000 in scholarship donations.
The Southern Nevada McDonald’s franchise owners are proud supporters of the local Las Vegas community and are always willing to give back through charitable work involvement and donations. The philanthropic involvement of local McDonald’s owner/operators include support of 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 the Make Activities Count Grant program.
