November was a whirlwind of a month.December too and today being December 21st glad that it’s almost over! the year that is,not the world;) It’s always this time of year that there are so many events and parties to attend and we were thrilled to have a great turnout at our very first annual Burger Ball raising awareness for a local Vegetarian Food Bank. And what an eclectic bunch of people they were! Lots of prizes were given away courtesy of Ted Reader,Mysteriously Yours Dinner Theatre, Aye LightHouse B&B, Glory Hole Doughnuts, and Rebel Geisha to name but a few.
This Burger Ball/fundraiser is something we want to do every year.To help raise awareness and /or funds for food related or women related charities that don’t get much press,exposure or financial assistance.
This year our guest of honor,Honorary Burger Broad, was Dana McCauley, one of the judges from Recipe to Riches on The Food Network. She is even more of a Broad in person!
We hosted it at a burger joint called Burger Stomper which was also featured on Dragon’s Den recently and they did a delicious job of catering to the meatatarian and vegetarian crowd with their patented Burger Stomper while our official sponsor SteamWhistle kept our whistles wet.
As I mentioned in a previous post, we are winding down around here at the BroadHouse preparing and making plans for next year.
Do hope you will continue to follow our journey as we go forth with new, unpredictable and exciting things!
Here’s an article from On The Danforth (magazine) about the party.
