KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Knoxville area teachers and parents served fries and drinks Tuesday night at McDonald’s locations throughout the area as part of McTeacher’s Night, a one-night fundraiser to raise money for local schools.

The schools receive a portion of the sales from 5 to 8 p.m. at participating locations. Teachers and administration “work” at the restaurants, greeting customers and serving food and drinks. Families of students and other residents were encouraged to visit McDonald’s for dinner, to show support for the faculty behind the counter and to help raise money for the school.

“We’re committed to education and supporting the schools in our community,” said Joe Burger III, president of the Smoky Mountain Owner/Operators’ Association, a co-op comprised of local franchisees with 78 restaurants across East Tennessee and Southeast Kentucky. “McTeacher’s Night is just one way we can assist educators and help local schools raise money.”

This is the fifth annual event in East Tennessee. Since 2011, local McDonald’s owners and operators have donated $136,000 to local schools.
