McDonald’s Restaurants of Hawaii recently presented a check for $14,500 to new University of Hawaii Head Football Coach Nick Rolovich, UH Athletics Director David Matlin, UH Special Assistant to the Athletics Director Joel Matsunaga and Na Koa Football Club Executive Director Kimberly Fujiuchi.
For every touchdown made by the UH Rainbow Warriors during the 2015 regular season, McDonald’s donated $500.
In 2015, the ‘Bows recorded 29 touchdowns for a grand total of $14,500 raised. The funds will go to the University of Hawaii Foundation – Na Koa Booster Club in support of the Rainbow Warriors Football program.
Over the past eight years, McDonald’s has donated $127,500 to UH Athletics through similar programs during the football season.
“McDonald’s Restaurants of Hawaii is a proud supporter of the Rainbow Warriors,” said Victor Lim, McDonald’s Restaurants of Hawaii owner and operator. “We are excited to see what the Rainbow Warriors can do under new head coach Nick Rolovich and wish the team well on the upcoming season.”
The McDonald’s sites on Kauai — Lihue, Eleele and Kapaa — owned by Darlene Chung participated in the fundraiser.
Last season, University of Hawaii football fans had double the reason to cheer with the “Big Mac Monday” promotion, where customers who purchased a Big Mac Extra Value Meal on a Monday during the UH football season, received a second Big Mac sandwich free.
“The Big Mac Monday promotion is always a hit with UH fans,” Lim added. “What better way to get everyone excited about the season than with one of our signature sandwiches. Go ‘Bows!”
