McDonalds Wie working together

RSS

McDonald’s announced Monday that it has entered into an agreement with Michelle Wie. The relationship was announced following the filming of a McDonald's commercial that will feature Wie and a message celebrating success and achievement. The campaign will launch in April.

In addition to the commercial, Wie will participate in several McDonald's programs and promotional opportunities focused on educational achievement.  

'Michelle Wie is one of the world's most inspiring young athletes,” said Neil Golden, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of McDonald's USA.. “She continues to excel, not just in golf, but also in academics and a number of other endeavors. She is an excellent role model for youth looking to achieve personal success on a number of fronts and as such, will be a tremendous representative for the McDonald's brand and our commitments to education.'   

Said Wie: 'I'm thrilled to be partnering with a global company like McDonald's, but I am especially proud of the message we are working to deliver together. Growing up, I was taught to believe in myself, to dream big, and that success is a team effort.  It's a very important message and I'm excited to work with McDonald's to share it with today's youth.'

Wie is set to play this week at the Kia Classic and next week at the Kraft Nabisco Championship.
