They go hand in hand, and June’s Burger of the Month most definitely created a summer flavour burst!
Guest Chef Austin Weaver brought the inspiration for the “Fiesta Grande Chicken Burger” which landed on our Lacombe menu. $2 from every burger sold went directly to Austin’s cause of choice – the Saving Grace Animal Society
A few years back Austin and his wife Shelby adopted a cat from a local animal shelter andAustin says it changed their lives. “We’ve always had pets in both our families, but “Lulu” was different, she was as big as a football and had a character, unlike any other cat we’d ever had.
She would “Mao” instead of “Meowing”, walk on a leash, and go on road trips with us, she was a big part of our family”. It’s that experience and those memories that made Austin want to support Saving Grace with the BOTM funds.
Saving Grace Animal Society runs an animal rescue in Alix and an off-site sanctuary for larger animals, providing rescue services 24/7 for emergency calls all over Alberta and Saskatchewan.
Saving Grace believes every animal can be rehabilitated, it’s for that reason they take on the hardest cases. The Society operates solely off a donation-based budget, and they are currently fundraising for their very own vet clinic.
Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program Austin helped us deliver $898 to Saving Grace Animal Society today!
Because of the love 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 65 months
