A flying spin is where you land when you have a local figure skater glide on up to the challenge of Guest Chef!
Cindel Bayerle was keen to give back to a local sports group which she calls “a second family”. “Cindel’s Pizza Burger” landed on our Lacombe menu for the month of April, it included 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 the Lacombe Skating Club.
Cindel joined the Lacombe Skating Club in 2014 and has been serving as a Program Assistant for CanSkate where she supports young skaters. “The overwhelming support from both my fellow skaters, and my coaches has been amazing. Even on a bad day, I get on the ice, and it all disappears because I have all the support and mentorship I need. The relationships I have made have helped mould me into a strong supporter for younger skaters and it allows me to give back the same support I have received. I can’t wait to do it again next season!”
The Lacombe Skating Club works hard to keep registration costs as low as possible to ensure skating continues to thrive in our community. Club President Rebecca Bayerle says they use donations like this one to keep those costs low, and they also have one other specific need they will be putting the burger proceeds towards “we plan to use funds to help recertification of our jump assist harness that our coaches use on our higher-level STAR skaters.”
Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program Cindel helped us deliver $766 to Lacombe Skating Club yesterday (Thursday, May 4th). 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 $130,000 to local charities over the past 75 months! THANK-YOU!
