Guests will enjoy live music by the David Higgins Band and DJ Bone, an open bar with wine, beer and spirits, hors d'oeuvres, charcuterie and desserts from Top Shelf Catering, a photo booth, silent auctions, raffle items and sunset views of the Charleston Harbor.
Now through Dec. 12, Charleston-area McDonald’s restaurants are raising money through the drive-thru to benefit local Ronald McDonald House Charities. This is the second year the fundraiser is being held.
Customers will be able to round up their purchase to the nearest dollar or choose to give $1, $3 or $5 to benefit the cause. Customers can also make donations of $1, $3 or $5 by placing their order through the McDonald’s app.
The goal this year is to raise a total of $2 million.
