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.
Arrowsmith Search and Rescue is currently building a new operations centre at the Qualicum Beach Airport. The group has been raising funds to pay for the project. To date, they’ve raised $900,000 and need t0 generate another $500,000.
This month, it has launched also Help Bring Us Home fundraising campaign, asking for community support to retire it’s operation centre construction loan.
The construction 0f its new hall is progressing well with the building now up. The non-profit group, which is 100 per cent a volunteer organization, is hoping to move in to their new hall in the fall.
