Burgerville helps the WLACC with fundraising

Burgerville helped the West Linn Adult Community Center by hosting a fundraiser.

On the face of it, this partnership should be a win-win. And, really, the idea is genius. The local Burgerville at 18350 Willamette Drive is partnering with community organizations to help them raise money.

It works like this: The West Linn Adult Community Center contacted the Burgerville manager about holding an event. July 12 from 5-8 p.m. was established as the date and time. WLACC friends as well as all other community members are invited to dine in or take out at Burgerville during these hours. The WLACC will recruit 8-16 volunteers to help the restaurant clear tables during the event. Burgerville will then donate a percentage of the qualified sales during this time to the WLACC.

To help with promotion, Burgerville provides customized fliers, advertises on the outside marquee/reader board, and provides posters to display at the WLACC. If all goes according to plan, Burgerville will realize increased sales during the event, and the WLACC will earn a portion of the profits.

So if you’re inclined to eat at Burgerville of an evening, consider doing so on July 12 between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. at 18350 Willamette Drive. You will have a tasty meal and help to support the WLACC’s fundraising campaign as well.

On an unrelated note, the WLACC’s Gift Shop is in need of volunteers to staff the place. We have one permanent shift to fill on Mondays from noon-3 p.m. In addition, we would like to have more volunteers to fill-in when vacations or emergencies call away regular shift workers. The work isn’t difficult, and thorough training is provided. So if either of these openings sound like something you’d be interested in, call the number below and ask for Veronica Ferenz, our extremely hard-hitting, yet delightful, Gift Shop manager.

Questions? Please call Tiffany Carlson at 503-557-4704. We are located at 1180 Rosemont Road, West Linn.

Our lunch menu this week is Chastened Chicken Mirabella with Risotto, Friday, July 8; Triumphant Tuscan Shrimp Pasta on Monday, July 11; and Sassy Soup and Sandwiches, Wednesday, July 13. Meal price is $5.
