From October 31 to November 7, 2015, taste buds in the CBRM were delighted by specialty burgers created by 18 restaurants, all in support of the Hospice Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton County.
During the week, each restaurant donated a portion or all of the proceeds from each Burger Week burger sold to the Society.
Thanks to the participating restaurants and hungry Cape Bretoners, more than $10,000 was raised in support of palliative care patients and their families.
“At Casino Nova Scotia, we are very proud to be given the opportunity to participate in the annual Burger Week fundraiser to support the Hospice Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton County. Our Mantra is Proud of our Business, People and our Community. We were very pleased with this year’s results, and again we donated 100% of the selling price. We are proud to report we sold 264 burgers for a total donation of $3,429.36. A highlight for our team was the day we had 40 burgers ordered for takeout – our employees had a blast taking care of this order.”
