The Fairbury McDonald’s Restaurant will be hosting a fundraising event to benefit the Bonham Theatre Project on Tuesday, June 25th. On that day, the Fairbury McDonald’s Restaurant will donate 10% of sales to the Bonham Theatre Project’s Capital Campaign to raise funds for the restoration of Fairbury’s historic movie theatre.
The Fairbury McDonald’s Restaurant opens at 6:00 am and 10% of all sales for the entire day (drive thru, dine in and carry out) will be donated. “McDonald’s is proud to be part of the Fairbury community and we look forward to the opportunity to give back to the community,” stated Jim Pike, owner.
Bonham Theatre Project board members and volunteers will be on hand that day during peak hours to visit with patrons and provide updates about the project. “We are still looking to recruit more members, collect information and photos of the Bonham Theatre and we invite everyone to eat at McDonald’s that day and share your memories of the theatre with us,” according to BTP board member, Debby Ebke. “We appreciate McDonald’s commitment to our community and look forward to this event.”
McDonald’s has been a part of the Fairbury community since 1983.
