Our January Burger of the Month raising funds for Rimbey Long Term Care

“The loss is immeasurable, but so is the love left behind”.

There was plenty of love behind our January Burger of the Month in Lacombe, created in loving memory of Grandma (Shirley) Hancik.

Local Guest Chef Sam Hancik was keen to support the staff at Rimbey Long-Term Care for the love and care they provided to his Grandma.  Sam’s “Pickle Chicken Teriyaki” Burger landed on our Lacombe menu for the month of January in her honour.  It included “two grilled teriyaki glazed chicken thighs, tempura fried dill pickle, apple slaw and sesame aioli with a tomato skewer on a buttered brioche bun!  $2 from every burger sold is going directly to Rimbey Long-Term Care.

Rimbey Long-Term Care is an 84-bed continuing care unit at the Rimbey Hospital and Care Centre. Donations like this one are used to help enhance health care in Rimbey, making resources available for purchasing equipment and supporting health related programs.

Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program Sam and his family helped us deliver $955 to Rimbey Long-Term Care today (Tuesday, February 7th).  Sam and BAMSS Contracting Inc. also stepped up to match our donation!  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 72 months!  THANK-YOU!

Our February Burger of the Month at our Lacombe location is “Pop it Like It’s Hot”, created in collaboration with local Guest Chef Chantele Broderson!  It features a crispy chicken breast topped with smoked cheddar, peppered bacon & white cheddar popcorn on a brioche bun with pickles, iceberg lettuce and garlic aioli, garnished with crumbled white popcorn‼️ $2 from every burger sold is going directly to Chantele’s local organization of choice – the Lacombe Kinsmen in memory of Tye Friesen.
