A definite check in the win column in September at our Red Deer location as Cam Moon stepped out from behind the mic to help create a burger for our beloved Burger of the Month Program, the “Rebel Moon”. For Rebel’s fans ‘Mooner’ will always hold a special place in their hearts after calling every Rebels game for more than two decades. He’s now moving towards his 1st anniversary as Oilers radio play by play announcer.
Moon’s “Rebel Moon” burger included a toasted bolillos bun with spicy ground chorizo sausage, buttermilk marinated ancho chili fried chicken breast, butter leaf lettuce, melted cayenne and peppercorn gouda, topped with fresh guacamole! $2 from every “Rebel Moon” is going directly to Cam’s charity of choice – Special Olympics Alberta!
When we asked Cam about Special Olympics, he pointed to his time with the Red Deer Rebels and the more than 20 seasons Mikel McIver has served as Dressing Room Attendant “I worked with Mikel, he became a good friend. I was able to see the positive impact Special Olympics made on his life. That’s the type of impact I’d like to support”. Mikel has made quite the splash in the pool over the years winning countless medals at the provincial and national level with Special Olympics swimming.
Special Olympics Alberta supports over 3000 athletes in over 26 community programs. BOTM dollars will help fund the return of their virtual PEAK Program. Under the program they deliver eight-week programs designed to keep athletes healthy, connected, and active at home while they navigate the challenges of the pandemic. Special Olympics delivers virtual sessions from workouts to nutrition. Donations also support daily training for athletes who compete at regional, provincial, national, and international Games.
Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program Cam Moon helped us hand over $1482 to Special Olympics Alberta today (Friday, October 8th). Thanks to the amazing support we see from our guest’s month after month, we have had the opportunity to give back over $90,000 to local charities over the past 56 months! THANK-YOU!
