Definitely some hockey with heart in the month of November as the Lacombe Generals AA Senior Hockey Team stepped up to inspire a burger at our Lacombe location in support of the Lacombe Food Bank.
Teamwork helped create this dream burger, “The General”. It included two Alberta beef smash patties, jalapeno jack cheese, drunken onions and jalapenos in Blindman Five of Diamonds Pilsner, and bacon tomato sauce on a pretzel bun skewered with a spicy house tempura battered pickle spear! $2 from every Burger sold in November at our Lacombe location is going directly to the Generals charity of choice the Lacombe Food Bank
Team Manager Jared Williams says the team wanted to support the Food Bank because they know they can always use the help with people coming through their doors every week, and demand increasing as we approach the holidays. “They definitely need the help, it’s a cause that is close to our group, we’ve always done what we can to support the Food Bank”. Hustle and heart most definitely set this team apart.
When we checked in with Food Bank Manager Millie Snow on current needs at the Food Bank, she responded with “Everything”. She is humbled and grateful for the support from the Generals.
Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program the Lacombe Generals helped us deliver $1258 to the Lacombe Food Bank at Saturday’s home game versus Camrose (the Gens won 7-2!). 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 $120,000 to local charities over the past 70 months!
