Thursday was Burgers to Beat MS day at A&W. Two dollars from every Teen Burger sold went toward Multiple Sclerosis research and support programs.
A&W Portage Owner and Manager Josh Black says it was an absolutely amazing day.
“We ended up selling just over 800 Teen Burgers and Double Teens,” says Black. “So, the $2 from every Teen Burger will take us to just over $1,600, plus some of the other donations will be just over $2,000 for the day. It was great, the community’s support. It was one of the busiest days of all time here. The radio station itself, I have to give kudos, they had a great contest out supporting us. It was just a great event and a great day.”
A&W puts on a Burgers to Beat MS day every year and Black says a total of over $2-million was raised last year. He says while they had great support last year, this year’s Burgers to Beat MS day in Portage was slightly busier.
I wish A&W would do the same thing here in the United States; support the National MS Society like they do in Canada.
