Eat a burger, help the MS Society

You don’t need a better excuse to enjoy a Teen Burger on Thursday, August 25 than Cruisin’ for a Cause.

A&W Cruisin' for a Cause goes August 25.

You don’t need a better excuse to enjoy a Teen Burger on Thursday, August 25 than Cruisin’ for a Cause.

“Last year the West Kootenay chapter received over $3,000 in funding from this event, and what we receive is directly tied to the amount raised by area restaurants, so bring a friend and come on out and order a Teen Burger,” says Lonnie Facchina, client services coordinator for the local chapter.

The third annual A&W event has a goal of raising $1 million for the MS Society of Canada. They are accepting donations throughout August, topped off with Cruisin’ for a Cause.

For every teen burger sold Thursday, A&W will donate $1 to the MS Society. Not only are you helping out a great cause while enjoying a burger, but you may have a chance to get an up close look at some classic cars while their owners are chuggin’ the famous root beer. Car clubs in the area are great supporters of the event and will be out in force again this year.

All four locations in the West Kootenay (which includes Grand Forks and Castlegar) are taking part and have special things planned during the day.

Both Nelson locations are taking part and you can stop by the Railway Street location between 5 and 8 p.m. and relax in your ride while you receive old fashioned carhop service. All the money raised goes to help people living with multiple sclerosis and for research into a cure for this lifelong debilitating disease.

Since 2001 the West Kootenay Chapter of the MS Society of Canada has been providing services and programs to those affected by MS throughout the region.
