Eat a burger, help your neighbor

Also, in honor of Memorial Day, $1 for each Red, White and Bleu Burger sold will go toward MacDill Air Force Base's Readiness Program. The organization relieves pressure on parents and families with loved ones who are deployed by making it possible for them to enjoy activities like baseball and football games. This special also runs Friday, May 24 to Monday, May 27.

All six local locations are participating, so be sure to order some hot dogs, burgers and onion rings and help someone in need.

Joanie Corneil and Bill Shumate, owners of Square 1 Burgers, are both from Oklahoma. This weekend, Corneil and Shumate are raising money for not one, but two great causes.

For families and victims of the recent Oklahoma tornado, $1 will be donated for every Okie Dog or double-dipped onion rings order. The fundraiser runs from Friday, May 24 to Monday, May 27, and proceeds go to the Red Cross for Oklahoma Disaster Relief Fund.
