Proceeds from Cilantro and Chive’s ‘Burger of the Month’ support Aspire Special Needs Resource Centre!

July’s Burger of the Month ‘The Taco Burger’ was a huge hit

Cilantro and Chive’s Burger of the Month for July – ‘The Taco Burger’ was a huge hit, with guest support helping staff to turn over $1,740 to Aspire Special Needs Resource Centre.

The guest chef for July was local hairstylist Jenna Bell, who helped create this summer dream burger; an Alberta beef patty, complete with shredded cheddar, nacho chips, pico de gallo, avocado crema, shredded lettuce and chipotle aioli on a brioche bun.

Two dollars from every burger sold went directly to her charity of choice, Aspire Special Needs Resource Centre.

The Centre, based in Red Deer, supports families and the local community to help children with special needs reach their full potential.

The cause is near and dear to Jenna’s heart and she believes in the dedication and positive influence Aspire provides, and the big impact they have in each child’s life.

Aspire will use these dollars to directly support families needing their services here in Central Alberta.

“We’re blessed with the best guests who get behind this program month after month, allowing us the opportunity to give back over $50,000 to local charities over the past 30 months! THANK-YOU,” noted a release.

In the meantime, August’s Burger of the Month is the “BREW-BQ BURGER”.

Local guest chef Matt Hamill of Red Shed Malting provided the inspiration for this Alberta beef burger, complete with Paddy’s Brewbecue smoked pastrami, swiss cheese, housemade ketchup, drunken onions with Blindman Brewing porter, pickle spear on a pretzel bun.

Two dollars from every burger sold supports his charity of choice, the Red Deer Hospice Society.
