Lasting memories and friendships, the value of teamwork and active healthy lifestyles all inspired the giving for our March Burger of the Month Guest Chef in Lacombe.
Local Junior High School Teacher and Minor Hockey Executive Amy Richter provided the creative inspiration for the “Spring Chicken” burger which included two house-marinated chicken thighs, peppered bacon, dill ranch, spinach & strawberry medley, with mayo on a garlic buttered brioche bun with a pickle skewer! $2 from every burger sold is going directly to Amy’s local organization of choice – KidSport Lacombe County!
Amy grew up in a fun, active household surrounded by family, but financially, organized sports were out of the question. When Amy and her sister were in Grade 6 and 8 they had the opportunity to play softball, where they met new friends, and teammates, and made some lasting friendships. As an adult and having children of her own, Amy notes “living an active lifestyle is so important to me and my health and my relationship with my boys. I really think getting involved in sports as a kid and developing healthy habits is essential to, well, everything. Not just being healthy but learning how to be a teammate and cooperate and encourage each other. There shouldn’t be barriers for children to experience that. So, supporting KidSport-Lacombe is very important to me.”
KidSport Lacombe County is a local, completely volunteer-run chapter that supports families in the City of Lacombe, Lacombe County, Blackfalds, Bentley, Eckville, Clive, and Alix. Their mission is to remove the financial barriers that prevent youth from playing organized sport by providing financial assistance to cover registration fees for kids up to the age of 18, and strategically partnering with like-minded charities that provide access to equipment for this same demographic.
The local chapter raises funds for kids in our community, where every dollar raised stays in the community. KidSport Lacombe County started funding kids in March 2022 and in less than a year they have already funded 100 kids in the Lacombe Country region!
Thanks to YOUR support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program, Amy helped us deliver $1002 to KidSport Lacombe County yesterday (Tuesday, April 4th).
Because of the incredible support for our Burger of the Month program month after month, we have had the opportunity to give back over $125,000 to local charities over the past 74 months! THANK-YOU!
Our April Burger of the Month at our Lacombe location is “Cindel’s Pizza Burger”, created in collaboration with local Guest Chef Cindel Bayerle! It includes two house-Alberta beef smash patties, house made pizza sauce, fried pepperoni, fried pickles, and a mozzarella cheese crisp on a brioche bun with a pickle spear! $2 from every burger sold is going directly to Cindel’s local organization of choice – the Lacombe Skating Club!
