Bigfoot Burgers in Whiskey Creek helps with fundraiser for Arrowsmith Search and Rescue

ASAR still looking for financial help to pay for new hall

Bigfoot Burgers in Whiskey Creek is celebrating its third anniversary.

To mark the occasion, Ted Spence, the proprietor of the restaurant, has committed to raise funds and awareness for the Arrowmsith Search and Rescue.

From May 4 to May 10, the restaurant is donating $1 from every burger sold and 10 per cent of merchandise sales that include T-shirts and stickers.

Spence said they are also selling 50/50 tickets for $1 each or eight for $5 and holding a coin toss game where you can win a mountain bike. The game is simple. Toss a toonie from about 25 feet aiming for a dime sized target. If you hit the bullseye, you walk away with the bike. If nobody hits the target, the closest shot at the end of the week gets the prize.
