On Wednesday March 7 , 2012 from 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm McDonald's on Vernon Avenue in Kinston hosted a McTeacher Night. There was a record turnout for the fundraising event. Several of Northeast's Staff were cooking hamburgers and fries , making milk shakes and McCafe' Lattes, greeting students and their families at the door and cleaning tables. McDonald's spokesperson said that the event was a HUGH financial success making more money in 3 hours than they normally make in a 8 hour period, also making more money at the Vernon Avenue location than any other Fund raising School. Some of the proceeds will go to Northeast. During the school day March 7 before the McTeacher Night , the Hamburglar paid a visit to Northeast Elementary School and visited with students in their classrooms.
