There are so many great folks to thank for the success of this fundraiser. First, we’d like to thank our presenting sponsor, SooToday.com, for helping us get the word out about Soo Burger Month 2022.
We’d also like to thank all ten restaurants for participating in Soo Burger Month 2022. We couldn’t have done it without you and hope we can work together again for Soo Burger Month 2023!
Lastly, we’d like to thank all of the lovely community members who decided to #SupportLocal and #SupportHabitat by enjoying one of the ten delicious Soo Burger Month burgers offered by participating restaurants.
