Giving hope to those who think they are alone in this world is the ultimate form of kindness and seeing a 12-year-old behind that kindness is incredible.
Our Lacombe Guest Chef for September was 12-year-old Londyn Hudson who helped us create “The Tower of Londyn”. It included two Alberta beef smash patties, green mayotchup, tempura mozzarella sticks, beer battered onion ring, blueberry bbq sauce, bacon jam, shredded iceberg lettuce, shaved onion and sliced beefsteak tomato on a sesame kaiser roll with a cherry tomato skewer. $2 of every burger sold is going directly to Londyn’s local charity of choice, The Broom Tree Foundation.
The Broom Tree Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to serving women and their families in central Alberta. The Foundation’s mandate is to maintain an enriched environment focused solely on women in need of support and compassion, empowering them to overcome a variety of obstacles and challenges to achieve their highest potential.
Londyn, knowing her mom faced obstacles in the past without support, wanted to pay it forward to other women in need of help “we need places where women can feel safe. A place where they can trust others. A place they can lean on in times of need without judgement. The Broom Tree is a safe landing place for those that need it”.
Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program Londyn helped us deliver $1362 to The Broom Tree Foundation today (Wednesday, October 5th). 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 $110,000 to local charities over the past 68 months! THANK-YOU!
The October Burger of the Month in Lacombe is “Second Breakfast”, created in collaboration with local guest chef, Bailee Wigmore! It includes a Berkshire pork patty, tater tots, sunny fried egg, smashed avocado, smoked maple sambal aioli, beefsteak tomato and shredded iceberg lettuce on a toasted everything bagel! $2 from every Burger sold goes directly to Bailee’s local charity of choice, the Blackfalds FCSS (Family & Community Support Services) Winter Coats for Kids Program.
