Seattle Christian senior Katie Collier will be playing in the McDonald’s All-American Game in Chicago at 4 p.m. Wednesday and a local McDonald’s restaurant is hosting a viewing party.
Here are the details:
Date: March 28, 2012
Time: 3:30 p.m.- 6 p.m.
Location: McDonald’s Restaurant
15210 Pacific Highway So.
Tukwila, WA 98188
Local McDonald’s Restaurant Owner/Operator Bob Comiskey will host a viewing party Wednesday afternoon to cheer on local prep star Katie Collier in the 2012 McDonald’s All-American High School Basketball Game.
The game, at the United Center in Chicago, starts at 4 p.m. Wednesday and will be carried live on a large-format TV screen at the McDonald’s Restaurant at 15210 Pacific Highway South in Tukwila (view map here) The public is invited to drop by the restaurant and cheer for their hometown favorite – the only player, male or female, in the five-state Pacific Northwest region to be selected to the McDonald’s All-American team. And because Ronald McDonald himself is a huge basketball fan, Ronald will be visiting the restaurant from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.
The event will also serve as a fund-raiser for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Washington and Alaska, with a percentage of the restaurant’s sales during the event going to RMHC. The Seattle House locally provides housing for families whose children are being treated for serious illnesses at Seattle Children’s Hospital.
Collier, a senior at Seattle Christian School, has drawn national attention for her battle with leukemia – a battle seemingly won as she completed a series of grueling chemotherapy treatments just two weeks before the big game.
Comiskey has more than a passing interest in Collier’s remarkable achievement. The Collier and Comiskey families have been friends for decades, and Megan Collier, Katie’s older sister, once worked in Comiskey’s restaurant.
