These Harmonious Gentleman are Stepping Up to help their community!

There were plenty of chats about burgers and everything in-between in April as the Harmonious Gentlemen joined us as Burger of the Month Guest Chefs in Lacombe!

Just who are the Harmonious Gents?!  Chris Kooman, Graham Langridge and Tyler Capton.  They became friends while teaching at Gateway Christian School in Red Deer, shared a love of podcasts and had a vision to share perspective.  Now they’re serving up open-minded harmonious chats in a regular podcast.

The Harmonious Gentlemen’s creative minds helped fuel the recipe for “Perfect Harmony”.  The burger included marinated chicken breast, smoked cheddar, crispy pickled onion, beefsteak tomato, baby arugula and Heckyeah hot sauce on marble rye and bakery fresh French bread.  $2 from every burger sold is going directly to their cause of choice, Step Up – Student Equity Fund through the Foundation for Red Deer Public Schools.

Step Up supports equity and reduces barriers to help students stay in and be engaged in school.  The fund helps to cover necessities that some students in Red Deer Public Schools may go without like breakfast and lunch programs, bus passes, winter clothing, medical and dental care.  Financial challenges should not limit educational opportunities. Chris Kooman says “as teachers, we are connected to students everyday, and we have seen both the hardship that some students go through, as well as the impact that the Step Up Fund can have in meeting these basic needs and making a difference in students’ lives”.

Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program Chris, Graham and Tyler helped us deliver $854 to the Foundation for Red Deer Public Schools Step Up fund today (Wednesday, May 4th).  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 63 months!  THANK-YOU!

The May Burger of the Month in Lacombe is the “Bagel Burger” created with local Guest Chef Torie Goings.  It includes a garlic butter grilled everything bagel, two Alberta beef smash patties each with a slice of provolone cheese, bacon mushroom ketchup, craft beer caramelized onions, over easy egg, sliced tomato, shredded iceberg lettuce picked with a cherry tomato!  $2 from every burger sold goes directly to Torie’s cause of choice the Women’s Outreach Dragonfly Centre.
