27 months… that’s how long we’ve been running our Burger of the Month program, and it absolutely BLOWS us away each and every time! Over $50,000 in money raised to local charity initiatives to date, and in so many ways we feel like we’re just getting started.
We were lucky to be able to meet Brad Pallister, from Len Thompson Fishing Lures – who was heavily involved with the new “World’s Largest Fishing Lure” right here in Lacombe! Him and his family are incredible people, and amazing supporters of our community. So of course the Burger of the Month leaned towards seafood of some kind – and Salmon seemed like best option for a Summer Burger!
When it came to a local charity, Brad thought of a few different charities that meant a lot to him, but the Smiles Thru Lindsey Foundation really struck a chord with him. He and his family are very close with the More family, and thought it would be an incredible charity to give $2 from every Burger to – and help raise even more awareness to Lindsey’s legacy.
We had actually just worked with the More family last month for a Charity event, “Calder Takes Over” and our good friend Calder Sutton from Siding 14 Brewing got us more involved with the Smiles Thru Lindsey Foundation, and we couldn’t be more thankful. To be now connected to more amazing Central Alberta Families, and help bring more money and awareness to Mental Health Initiatives.
Especially in our industry, we love to be able to raise awareness for Mental Health. Having balance in life is something that we coach a lot with our own team, and remind them that if they need anything at all they have our personal cell numbers, and a team of over 50+ that has their back.
Just one HECK of a feel-good month!
We can’t wait for all of you to try “The Big Catch” and be able to hand that big cheque over to the More family with Brad, on behalf of all of YOU who continue to make our Burger of the Month program a reality. For the last 27 months, and well into the future!
