NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The Good Morning Nashville team helped raise money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Nashville.
For the third year, GMN collected money at two McDonald’s locations in Nashville — on Broadway in downtown Nashville and on Hillsboro Pike in Green Hills.
GMN anchor Neil Orne served laughs and collected cash at the Broadway location throughout our morning broadcast. The gang from the Mix 92.9 morning show at the location in Green Hills was joined by meteorologist Jared Plushnick.
Donations were accepted at both locations until 1 p.m. We challenged Neil and Jared to see who can raise the most money for a great cause. Those who paid with cards had the option to “round up” their totals, with the remaining amount going toward the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Last year’s event raised more than $1,300 for Ronald McDonald House, which serves as a “home away from home” for families whose children are receiving medical treatment in the Nashville area.
This year, Good Morning Nashville raised $1,933.69. Neil brought in $967.52 while Jared raised $966.17— a difference of $1.35.
