Ms. Nancy Pizzo and Ms. Julie Dennis, representing McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada, accepted the Friend of the Centre Award on behalf of McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada.

The John McGivney Children’s Centre was the recipient of proceeds from the May 18, 2005 McDonald's McHappy Day which supports Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada and local children's charities.  Donations from the day given to the Centre totalled over $14,000.00.  In addition, a grant request recently submitted to the Ronald McDonald House Charities Foundation by the Centre has been accepted which will allow us to proceed with several projects addressing our commitment under the Ontario Disabilities Act to increase accessibility within the Centre even more. The Centre is most appreciative of McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada for their generous donation and commitment to the Centre and the children and families we serve.
