THE GENERALS shoot… and score big with our Burger of the Month!!

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!

THANK-YOU!

Results from our October Burger of the Month in Lacombe!

Our October Burger of the Month Guest Chef in Lacombe is passionate about supporting kids and is keen to do her part to ensure no young people go without warm winter gear!  We’re happy to help her turn over funds early to help make that happen for families in Blackfalds.

Bailee Wigmore helped us create “Second Breakfast”.  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 Wear Program.

Bailee was raised in Blackfalds, has her finger on the pulse of the community and understands the needs, having served in the non-profit sector and most recently in a local school.  She points to our Alberta winters and the work of FCSS “having a warm winter coat is essential, I chose the Coats for Kids program as I feel it is an amazing initiative supporting many families in Blackfalds. The program aims to provide families in need with the opportunity for their children to choose their own winter coat at Mountain Warehouse free of cost to them.”

As a result of donations like this one and others from the community, Jan Pocock with Blackfalds FCSS says 136 local children and youth will receive a well-fitting, age-appropriate coat to proudly wear this winter. “When the community works together, we can ensure that all children are warm and valued.   If you are a Blackfalds resident and would like more information on this program, please call the Blackfalds FCSS office at 403-600-9066.”

To ensure those families and more have the essential winter gear they need for this winter season we were happy to help Bailee turn over Burger of the Month proceeds in advance.

Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program Bailee helped us deliver $1500 to Blackfalds FCSS on 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 69 months!  THANK-YOU!

Results from our September Burger of the Month in Lacombe, bring big smiles to many!

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!

“We live in a world where we need to build a capacity for understanding”

“We live in a world where we need to build a capacity for understanding” – words from our August Burger of the Month Guest Chef in Lacombe on her local cause of choice, Central Alberta Pride Society.

Meagan Parisian provided the inspiration behind the “Chicken Pride Parm”.  It included two fried marinated chicken thighs, spiced tomato jam, house tomato sauce, provolone, and parmesan cheeses on a grilled garlic ciabatta bun, garnished with deep fried basil, a cherry tomato, and a pride flag!  $2 from every burger sold is going directly to Central Alberta Pride Society.

For Meagan, it’s about having conversations, creating space to understand, and building safe communities.  “We need to take the time to build relationships, feel comfortable to ask questions of one another, and join together to create affirming and safe environments for all. As a bisexual woman, and as the mother of a non-binary kid, it’s important to me to help foster these conversations in a collaborative way. Central Alberta Pride is my charity of choice because they stand firm in their mission to strengthen our LGBTQ2S+ communities by building awareness, advocating for and educating about LGBTQ2S+ locally”.

Central Alberta Pride Society was founded in 2012 to bring LGBTQ2S+ awareness and community to Red Deer and surrounding areas with a mission to strengthen our community and cultivate social change through support, awareness, and education.  Their vision is for a safe community that values, embraces and celebrates Central Alberta’s diversity.

Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program Meagan helped us deliver $828 to Central Alberta Pride Society today (Wednesday, September 7th).  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 67 months!  THANK-YOU!
