An 11 year old with a huge heart!

We celebrated 5 years of our Burger of the Month Program in February by going back to our roots, revisiting how it all started with a local kindergarten class and BIG ideas!  We received 100’s of submissions for our Dream Burger Coloring Contest which gave kids an opportunity to design their own burger with a chance of having it land on our menu!

11-year-old Reese Moborg, a grade six student at Central Middle School in Red Deer submitted the winning entry at our Lacombe location, the “Spaghetti & Meatballs Burger”.  It included an Alberta beef smash patty, four beef meatballs, deep fried spaghetti, jalapeno jack cheese, spaghetti sauce, shaved parmesan on a garlic butter toasted pretzel bun!  $2 from every burger sold is going directly to Reese’s charity of choice Outreach Centre Red Deer’s Dragonfly Children’s Healing Centre.

Reese loves sports, especially gymnastics, with goals to represent Canada at the Olympics one day!  She wants all children to have the support they need to achieve the dreams they have, which is why she wanted to support the Dragonfly Children’s Healing Centre.

The Centre provides a spectrum of services to children and youth from Red Deer and Central Alberta who are experiencing trauma from domestic violence, homelessness, and suicide.  Using a collaborative approach, the goal is to give kids who have experienced potentially traumatizing events or patterns of events the opportunity to heal and develop healthy skills and behaviors.

Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program Reese helped us deliver $886 to the Dragonfly Children’s Healing Centre today (Thursday, March 10th).  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 $100,000 to local charities over the past 61 months!  THANK-YOU!

The March Burger of the Month in Lacombe is the “Olive My Love” created in collaboration with local Guest Chefs Jodie & Luke Solomon!  It includes toasted ciabatta, kalamata olive tapenade, sundried tomato, grilled chicken, fresh cucumber, goat cheese, tzatziki, arugula, garnished with a skewered olive!  $2 from every burger sold goes directly to Jodie & Luke’s charity of choice Saving Grace Animal Society.
