Bathurst McDonald's one of top 'McHappy Day' fundraisers in Canada

The owner of the McDonald's restaurant in Bathurst says this year's McHappy Day fundraiser, held earlier this week,  was the best ever.

Ron McLellan says his Saint Peter Ave. location was one of the top fundraisers out of more than 1,400 restaurants across the country, finishing first in Atlantic Canada and in the top ten nationwide.

He says well over $6 million was raised from coast to coast for Ronald McDonald House and local children's charities.

McLellan says the success of McHappy Day is due to the overwhelming support of the employees, people, businesses, and organizations in the Chaleur Region.
