Daily Herald report

Maine West High School teachers moved from in front of their classrooms to behind the counter Tuesday for the school's annual McTeacher's Night, a fundraiser to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The teachers served customers at the McDonald's restaurant just down Oakton Street from the school from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday. Fifteen percent of the money spent during that time by Maine West families will be donated to Make-A-Wish, which arranges special experiences for children with life-threatening illnesses.
