‘McI Love ISU’ scholarship fundraiser set Sept. 17 at a Pocatello McDonald’s Restaurant
September 11, 2009
A brand new “I Love ISU” event will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. Sept. 17 at the McDonald’s Restaurant in Pocatello at 831 Yellowstone Ave. (across from Fred Meyers) in Pocatello, which will hold its first “McI Love ISU Night.”
During this time “I Love ISU” leaders and volunteers will work the counters at this McDonald’s and 25 percent of the sales at this location will be donated to the “I Love ISU Campaign.”
“We are pleased to help support the fundraising efforts of the ‘I love ISU’ campaign,” said Mary Johnson, McDonald's co-owner along with her husband, Mike. “The scholarships provided to the deserving students because of this wonderful program, make a positive long-term investment in the lives of many and to all of us who are fortunate enough to call Southeast Idaho home.”
Many “I Love ISU” team captains including Jay Colonel, Ted Messmore, Dena Green and Mark Lupo, as well as campaign chairman Jennifer Bowen, co-chairman Roger Wheeler and campaign coordinator K.C. Felt, will be manning the counters at this McDonald’s.
“All ISU faculty, staff and students and friends of the University are encouraged to make a stop at this McDonald’s between 4 and 8 p.m, and help support scholarships for ISU students with their purchases,” said Felt.
“Expectations are for great success,” added Felt, “and that this will become an annual event as part of the annual ‘I Love ISU’ scholarship campaign.”
“We would be honored if you joined us for dinner on Thursday, Sept. 17, at our newly re-built restaurant,” added Johnson. “You will see many familiar faces from Idaho State University working behind the counters.”
