It was an open the top button kind of burger in April in Red Deer with the “Big Matt”. Two hands required, a big appetite and a big heart.
Local morning show radio personality Matt Geddes provided the creative juices for this fat stack of a burger which landed on our Red Deer menu for the month of April. The “Big Matt” included two pieces of fried chicken thighs, honey dijon mustard, adobo maple bacon, sliced pickles, shredded lettuce, mayo, served in a three-part potato roll bun. $2 from every burger sold is going directly to Matt’s charity of choice, the Safe Harbour Society.
The cause hits close to home for Matt who recently lost his brother-in-law following a struggle with mental health issues and addiction. “He was someone who treated absolutely everyone he met with love and compassion, and I think that’s what Safe Harbour does as well”. Matt knows the Safe Harbour Society is always in need of supplies and monetary support, and he’s happy to do his part to help make a difference.
Safe Harbour welcomes all walks of life keeping our most vulnerable connected while standing beside families to offer resources and support when addiction, homelessness and poverty threatens to tear them apart. Their services include an emergency shelter, housing services, and support including a medical detox program. Donations fuel all their programs, with clothing, toiletries, socks, laundry soap and gift cards always put to good use.
Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program Matt helped us hand over $1134 to the Safe Harbour Society today. Thanks to the amazing support we see from our guest’s month after month, we have had the opportunity to give back over $100,000 to local charities over the past 63 months! THANK-YOU!
