HECKYEAH!! January meant a little extra boost for our beloved Burger of the Month program as we opened our Red Deer location mid month to serve up even more burgers! Our Executive Chef Mike Doppler was the creative mind behind the “Meatsweats”; a grilled sirloin beef patty piled high with shaved pastrami, wine sauerkraut, and Swiss cheese, on a toasted pretzel roll with Russian dressing! $2 from every burger sold is going directly towards Chef Mike’s charity of choice Underdogs Rescue.
Mike and his wife Heather recently took in a rescue dog from Underdogs Rescue Foster Care Program. The not-for-profit organization is run completely by volunteers and Mike knows the weight all charitable organizations are feeling, but especially this one following the Christmas season when many new pet owners may be overwhelmed with the commitment required in caring for a pet. The Doppler’s are overjoyed with their new family member “Piper”, a Staffordshire Terrier Mix with a plushie addiction, and are thrilled to give back to this organization after such a positive experience. Underdogs Rescue is dedicated to rescuing large “power” breed dogs in shelters across Canada, committed to the re-homing of these dogs, through rescue, rehabilitation, training, and care to responsible and loving dog owners. Donations go straight to the care of their dogs.
BAM! Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program Mike helped us hand over $882 to Underdogs Rescue today. Thanks to the amazing support we see from our guests for our Burger of the Month program month after month, we have had the opportunity to give back over $70,000 to local charities over the past 48 months! THANK-YOU!
February marks an exciting turn for our Burger of the Month program. We are introducing 2 Guest Chef’s, two burgers and two causes as we continue this program in both our Lacombe and new Red Deer location. In Lacombe we collaborated with City Councillor Cora Hoekstra on the “Spicy Yorkshire”. It includes a grilled beef patty on toasted yorkshire pudding buns, horseradish cream cheese spread, house jalapeno jam, mixed greens, beefsteak tomatoes, house pickled red onions and fried pickle chips garnished with cajun onion rings! $2 from every burger sold is going directly to Cora’s charity of choice Lacombe and District Historical Society. In Red Deer we teamed up with Dustin Harper from Bo’s Bar and Stage for the “Rink Burger”. It includes two smash burger patty’s, smoked cheddar, house ketchup, grainy honey yellow mustard, red onion and neon green dill pickle relish on a potato roll wrapped in a hockey rink style foil bag! $2 from every burger sold will go directly to his charity of choice, Normandeau School Values Program.
