Burger Heaven Sponsoring the Queen’s Park Healthcare Foundation for National Seniors Day on October 1

September 25, 2017

New Westminster, B.C. – On Sunday, October 1, Burger Heaven will be sponsoring the Queen’s Park Healthcare Foundation in celebration of National Seniors Day by donating a portion of sales to the Foundation.

“We’re thrilled to have one of New Westminster’s most popular restaurants supporting us for National Seniors Day,” says Jason Lesage, executive director. “It’s important to pay tribute to our elders because they built our society and created a high standard of living for everyone. Burger Heaven is a strong supporter of community organizations in New West, and they’re demonstrating their commitment for helping seniors in the city. What better way to support seniors than by enjoying great food from the best hamburger joint in all of Metro Vancouver.”

“When I was asked to consider sponsoring the Queen’s Park Healthcare Foundation for National Seniors Day, I said yes right away,” says Jude Mural, owner of Burger Heaven. “There are so many good non-profits to support, but seniors care is essential. Most people have had parents or grand-parents transition to a care home, and their comfort is important. I’m happy to support the Foundation in their work.”

From opening to close (11:00 am to 9:00 pm) on Sunday, October 1, Burger Heaven will donate a portion of all food and beverage sales to the Queen’s Park Healthcare Foundation. Burger Heaven is located at 77 10th Street in New Westminster.

National Seniors Day is recognized by the Government of Canada and all Canadians are encouraged to connect with seniors and recognize them for the important role they play in our lives, our society and our economy. A Twitter campaign will use the hashtag #SayThanks.
