The breakfast tradition started in June 2016. On average a second Sunday about 100 guests will dine in, making about $2,000 for the Ronald McDonlad House. Happy Jack's uses regular staff as well as recruits local high school students to volunteer to keep up with the breakfast rush. 100% percent of the food's bill goes to the Ronald McDonald House, while the tips go to the staff.
