Restaurants plan fundraisers for schools


McDonalds’ restaurants will sponsor the McTeacher’s Night fundraiser Tuesday from 5 to 9 p.m. Twenty percent of sales during the fundraiser will benefit local schools, a spokesman said.

Donations from the McDonald’s in the Watson Chapel community will benefit L.L. Owen Elementary School. The restaurant on Blake Street will give to Matthews Elementary School, while the Olive Street business will contribute to 34th Avenue Elementary School.

“We’re committed to education and to the Pine Bluff community, and we’re very excited about this

event,” said Mike Retzer, McDonald’s owner/operator in Pine Bluff.
