Thursday evening teachers, parents, students and friends alike gathered in the glow under the golden arches while supporting local elementary school, Spring Creek Elementary McTeacher’s Night, from 4:30-7:30 p.m. This event offered community members a win-win situation whereby dining in the restaurant, a portion of proceeds would be donated to the school.

Teachers from Spring Creek Elementary School District 205 volunteered behind the counter on Thursday, October 18th, at the Rockford McDonald’s located at 3858 Northridge Drive, where they served students and their families in a fundraiser for Spring Creek Elementary.

Calvin Carlson and James Sati did an outstanding job selling pies to customers throughout the night.  The proceeds from the pies went directly to benefit the students.  Twenty percent of the proceeds from the McTeacher’s Night sales were donated directly to the Spring Creek PTO, which plans to use the money to help pay for new bleachers.

David Bear, Owner Operator of the Northridge McDonald’s, and the Bear Family Restaurants were delighted to participate in the worthy cause for education and the community.

“McTeacher’s Night is part of McDonald’s larger commitment to education and other important initiatives supporting families and the local community,” Bear said.

Bear donated a case of apple pies to the school for sale at the event.  Inspired by the success of McTeacher’s Night, the Bear Family has set their sights on partnering with other schools in the Rockford area.
