Close to 3,500 kids from Cebu beamed with smiles and pride as they celebrated their McDonald’s Kiddie Crew summer experience with a special Grand Graduation held at J Centre Mall, Mandaue City from May 24 to 25.
With their families in tow, kids hopped from one graduation booth activity to another including face painting, shooting hoops, building monster towers, competing in a buzzer beater game, animal balloon making and enjoyed the active play zone.
The program was packed with surprises and performances for the whole family and was hosted by Ms. Jackie Lou Blanco.
Kids also met McDonald’s Chief Happiness Officer Ronald McDonald and his friends, Grimace, Hamburglar and Birdie. They had fun with the kids, congratulated and encouraged them to cherish their Kiddie Crew experience.
The program capped off with kids reciting the Kiddie Crew Oath followed by the singing of their graduation song “Make Things Happen” and the ceremonial Kiddie Crew cap toss.
The 5-day annual summer workshop is McDonald’s flagship family program that has been running for over 20 years in the Philippines. It aims to promote children’s well being through fun and enriching activities where every Kiddie Crew member learns, develop skills, have fun with the activities and make new friends.
“We are pleased that our Kiddie Crew members in Cebu had an amazing summer experience along with close to 60,000 kids nationwide. This is the highest number of participants that we’ve had in years and it’s an affirmation that a lot of kids are enjoying what we have for them every summer. We are also happy to see their whole families enjoying the grand graduation activities. This inspires us more to continue providing enjoyable experiences for families at McDonald’s,” said McDonald’s Marketing Director Rommel Ong.
The series of grand graduation include Laguna, Pampanga, Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro, Davao and Batangas, the newest location added this year. Concluding the series is a two-day grand graduation in Metro Manila to be held on May 30-31 at the World Trade Center, Pasay City.
