The Golden Burger Challenge is back for the month of October.
The North Okanagan Community Life Society (NOCLS) is bringing back the challenge for its second year, featuring 11 burgers from 11 restaurants competing for the Best Burger Golden Trophy over 31 days.
The challenge is a fundraiser for the NOCLS, which for 35 years has been instrumental in the community in working with people with disabilities.
“We focus on facilitating services for families and individuals who wish to live and work in the community independently. We implement and support individuals so they can pursue activities and interests and provide opportunities for them to make contributions to their community,” NOCLS said in a press release.
While the main purpose is to raise money for a good cause, the society is striving to make it a fun challenge to support local sponsors and drive local and tourist traffic into some of Vernon’s best establishments.
This year the NOCLS is pulling out all the stops and has included commercials for each burger. The videos can be watched on a dedicated YouTube channel.
The public will determine the golden winner. Here’s how the challenge works:
