Our guests most definitely connected to the “Eat Your Feelings” Burger in September! They pulled out the extra napkins and jumped in both with their appetites and hearts.
We were humbled to have Dr. Jody Carrington join us as guest chef! She dreamed up this poutine inspired burger which included an Alberta beef patty, cheese curds, Scholing’s fries, house-made gravy, candy bacon, onion rings, chipotle BBQ sauce, and leaf lettuce on a pretzel bun with a pickle spear!
$2 from every burger sold went directly to her organization of choice, Avery’s Legacy, which supports newly bereaved parents. Thanks to the INCREDIBLE support of our Burger of the Month program, Jody handed over a cheque for $2,304!
Our hearts skipped a beat when hearing the story behind Avery’s Legacy. It’s a story that also stayed with Dr. Carrington who says she just couldn’t stop thinking of Avery when it came time to choose what local organization she would like to support.
Cathy and her husband Ryan suffered the unimaginable. In March of 2017 their beautiful 13-month-old daughter Avery laid down for an afternoon nap at her day-home and never woke up again. They created Avery’s Legacy as a way to honour Avery’s memory and support others during times of grief. Avery’s Legacy specializes in creating meaningful gifts that promote a healthy grieving and mourning process, offering a variety of personalized bereavement boxes that support those who are grieving the death of anyone they love. Over the past 16 months they have been donating ‘Child Loss’ Bereavement Boxes to newly grieving parents who have recently lost a child in the Calgary area.
We’re blessed with the BEST guests who get behind our Burger of the Month program month after month, allowing us the opportunity to give back over
$55,000 to local charities over the past 32 months! THANK-YOU!
