Giving back to the Blackfalds Bulldogs Foundation with Barkley!

We were JACKED to walk through the doors of the new Eagle Builders Centre to take in a game and spend some time with our new furry friend Barkley!  Barkley is the mascot for the Blackfalds Bulldogs Junior “A” Hockey Club, and he served as our Burger of the Month Guest Chef in Red Deer for the month of November.

His “Barkburger” included an Alberta beef smash patty, blueberry BBQ sauce, torn chicken, grilled pineapple slice, shredded white cheddar, pickled red onions, and roasted garlic aioli on a garlic butter brushed brioche bun with ketchup seasoning.  $2 from every “Barkburger” sold is going directly to the Bulldogs Community Foundation!

Blackfalds Bulldogs Foundation Executive Director Dustin Moore notes “building an AJHL franchise from scratch is no small feat and the Blackfalds Bulldogs have added an element that very few junior hockey teams across Canada have”.  In April 2021, the Bulldogs Foundation was born. “With the vision of owners Jodie and Doug Quinn, the Bulldogs Foundation mission is to enhance the quality of life of the citizens of Central Alberta by identifying and addressing current community needs through fundraising and volunteering”. The Bulldogs Foundation is currently working with numerous community partners and organizations and look forward to continuing volunteering and investing into our Central Alberta Community.

Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program Barkley helped us hand over $1278 to the Bulldogs Foundation. Thanks to the amazing support we see from our guest’s month after month, we have had the opportunity to give back over $95,000 to local charities over the past 58 months!  THANK-YOU!

The December Burger of the Month in Red Deer is the “Lone Star” created in collaboration with local guest Chef Savannah Snow!  It’s a toasted brioche bun with smoky BBQ sauce, poblano pepper and cocoa rubbed brisket, shredded jalapeño jack cheese, Texas slaw with orange-chili dressing, fried banana peppers, frickle chip, and pickled yellow mustard seed “caviar”.  $2 from every Lone Star burger sold goes towards Savannah’s charity of choice – the Student’s Association Foodbank at Red Deer Polytechnic.
