OKLAHOMA CITY (April 4, 2019) – The McDonald’s Owner/Operators of Central and Western Oklahoma are teaming up with the Oklahoma City Thunder to support families with a hospitalized child through Ronald McDonald House Charities Oklahoma City (RMHC-OKC).From April 8 to April 26, the McDonald’s of Central and Western Oklahoma will be holding an in-store fundraiser to help families stay close to their hospitalized child. All money raised from the “Thunder Up!” for Ronald McDonald House Charities will go directly to support families through the Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Family Room in Oklahoma City. McDonald’s Customers can donate $1, $3 or $5 (or more) to be added to any order, which will be directly donated to RMHC-OKC. Customers can then put their name and a message on the Thunder Up! donation card, to be hung inside the restaurant, showing support for the families in need. To kick-off the Campaign, McDonald’s and RMHC will be at the Oklahoma City Thunder game, against the Detroit Pistons, this Friday, April 5. They will be in Thunder Alley raffling off a basketball autographed by the 2018-2019 Thunder team, and during the game, the Thunder and local McDonald’s owner-operators will recognize and celebrate the Helberg Family from Enid, Oklahoma, and how their son, Asher, survived after being rushed to The Children’s Hospital at only 2 days old because of seizures.
