More than 60,000 kids nationwide proudly graduated in McDonald’s Kiddie Crew Workshop 2015

 

McDonald’s, a popular fast food chain, was known to have their annual summer workshop for over 20 years in the Philippines aiming to promote children’s well being through fun and enriching activities where member learns, develop skills, have fun and make new friends.

This year, almost 60,000 kids nationwide enjoyed this workshop experience. In addition to this, the Grand Graduation event was the most exciting part of it.

The Grand Graduation event was first held in Laguna, Pampanga, Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Davao, and Batangas. And the final and biggest Graduation occurred May 30 and 31 of this year, at the World Trade Center, Pasay, Manila.

The event was opened with a very amazing performance of the dancers holding colourful props and materials. Ms. Jackie Lou Blanco and Mr. Drew Arellano then hosted the graduation event and made the kids, as well as the parents, happy with surprises and performances.

And what’s the sense of a McDonald’s Graduation Event if Ronald McDonald, McDonald’s Chief Happiness Officer, will not be there. So, Ronald and his friends, Grimace, Hamburglar, and Birdie were present to make the kids happier.
