(BPRW) McDonald's® Men of McCafé® Casting Call Deadline Extended

(BLACK PR WIRE) – (Oak Brook, IL – March 31, 2011) – McDonald’s continues its national search to identity five community service-minded males between 18 – 34 years old as part of the Men of McCafé Casting Call. The selected men will have the opportunity to engage with McDonald’s during the 2011 Essence Music Festival. The entry deadline has been extended to April 15, 2011.

Recently, McDonald’s wrapped up its action packed sponsorship of the 2011 Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) tournament weekend with a star-studded afternoon featuring the Men of McCafé celebrity ambassadors, actors and TV stars Hosea Chanchez (BET’s The Game) and Lamman Rucker (TBS’ Meet The Browns).

Celebrity hosts Isaac Keys, former NFL player and reality star from TV One’s The Ultimate Merger, and Alesha Renee, actress/television personality interviewed Rucker during the “Men of McCafé" Definition of a Man conversation where he encouraged men to become involved in their community and support causes they are passionate about. Following the conversation Rucker signed autographs for fans. Later that evening, Chanchez greeted hundreds of CIAA attendees, presenting them with autographed photos and McCafé t-shirts.
