It’s a Home Run giving back to the Gulls Give Foundation!

Nothing short of a grand slam in Red Deer in May as Sully of the Sylvan Lake Gulls stepped up to the plate as Burger of the Month Guest Chef!

The Sylvan Lake Gulls mascot hit it out of the park with the “Dugout Dog”! It included an Alberta beef smash patty, Alberta beef hotdog, toasted potato roll bun, house dill pickle dijon mustard, smoked ketchup, caramelized onions, shredded iceberg lettuce, spicy cheese sauce and peppered bacon! $2 from every burger sold is going directly to the Gulls Give Foundation. The Sylvan Lake Gulls are part of the Western Canadian Baseball League (WCBL). Graham and Jennifer Schetzsle introduced the Gulls Give Foundation right alongside the team in 2019, with a promise to make a difference, and return generosity in positive and meaningful ways by engaging with organizations who deliver programs supporting local vulnerable populations.

Graham and Jennifer say the same game principals utilized on the ball field apply to building community “great communities and teams are built on the principals of teamwork. Our foundation was formed to create a community within a community, aiming to make a difference in vulnerable populations. Whether it big or small we aim to make a difference”.

Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program Sully helped us hand over $1288 to the Gulls Give Foundation at Friday’s Gulls Game (Friday, June 10th). Thanks to the amazing support we see from our guest’s month after month, we have had the opportunity to give back over $105,000 to local charities over the past 64 months!


The June Burger of the Month in Red Deer is the “Stuffed BBQ Burger” created in collaboration with local Guest Chef Doug Anderson of Peavey Industries. It includes two smash elk patties, ground pork and caramelized onions, stuffed with mini Babybel cheese. It’s served on a toasted potato roll with roasted garlic aioli, Troubled Monk open road BBQ sauce, shredded lettuce, green pepper with jalapeño jelly, and skewered with dill pickle spear! $2 of every burger sold goes to Doug’s charity of choice, the Parkinson’s Association of Alberta, Central Alberta chapter.
