While many events around town have been canceled or postponed, the ICT Burger Battle is returning for another year. In past years, the event was held at one location and allowed diners to sample burgers from multiple vendors.
With COVID-19, plans had to change but the event will continue in a different format. This year, they are introducing the Burger Pass. The pass itself can be purchased for $30 on their web page, http://ictburgerbattle.com/, with proceeds going to benefit KETCH.
You can use the pass to redeem burgers at each participating location one time in exchange for a free burger with the purchase of a burger from their menu. It’s like a BOGO card that benefits both restaurants and a local charity.
The free burger you will receive will be the one burger chosen by the participating restaurant to compete in the 2020 Burger Battle. The burger pass will be valid September 1, 2020, through October 31, 2020 so it last for two months.
At the end of the two-month period, an online voting will determine which Wichita you believe deserves to be named the 2020 champion. The winning restaurant will receive a trophy and the title of 2020 People’s Choice Best Burger in Wichita according to the ICT Burger Battle.
This year, five restaurants signed on to compete and also help benefit KETCH: Red Robin Gourmet Burgers & Brew, Southeast Carryout, PourHouse, Fizz Bottles and Burgers, and Bricktown Brewery. Also big shoutouts to the event sponsors who are helping keep the event going despite the current COVID-19 situation our world is dealing with.
As stated earlier proceeds from burger pass sales will benefit programs and services at KETCH for adults in our community with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Through specialized programs and services, KETCH is dedicated to empowering adults with disabilities by developing and/or enhancing skills needed to reach their highest potential.
I’ve signed on to be one of the judges for the event and can’t wait to do one of my favorite things, eat for charity. Head over to http://ictburgerbattle.com/ to get your burger pass and support Ketch.
I’ll be giving out a couple passes away on my Facebook page so head on over there to possibly one of them.
