Torie Goings loves kids, and has helped give back in a big way!

Bagels are EVERYTHING, it’s true!  Especially when there’s a burger nestled in-between and they’re helping to raise funds for a great local cause.

Torie Goings served as our May Burger of the Month Guest Chef in Lacombe, helping us create the “Bagel Burger”.  It included 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 is going directly to Torie’s cause of choice 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, their 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.

Torie notes “dragonflies represent hope, change and new beginnings and the Healing Centre gives children hope and a chance to heal, providing them the opportunity to grow into happy and healthy adults.  The positive ripple effect that is created in our communities by supporting our little ones and teaching them the coping skills to deal with trauma is really incredible”.

Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program Torie helped us deliver $874 to the Dragonfly Children’s Healing Centre today (Friday, June 3rd).  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 $105,000 to local charities over the past 64 months!  THANK-YOU!

The June Burger of the Month in Lacombe is the “Fiesta Grande Chicken Burger” created in collaboration with local Guest Chef Austin Weaver.  It includes grilled marinated chicken breast with house-made pineapple chipotle tomato sauce, pepper jack cheese, crispy spiced tortilla strips, chunky avocado crema and skewered with a cherry tomato on toasted brioche bun!!  $2 from every burger sold goes directly to Austin’s cause of choice Saving Grace Animal Society.
