Pure Beauty Lounge will be taking over the grill at the Castle Grill for a burger benefit to raise money for the Carbon County Big Brothers Big Sisters program from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, June 10.
Frank Potoczak, owner of the Castle Grill, Lehighton, has challenged Pam Fludgate, owner of Pure Beauty Lounge, Lehighton, to design a burger that is not only tasty but can be served quickly at a pocketbook-friendly price and still meet the standards of Castle Grill's quality.
The staff of Pure will be in the kitchen grilling a surprise burger recipe all day. If the burger is successful, it'll become part of the Castle Grill menu.
The proceeds for each Pure burger ordered will go toward the Carbon County Big Brothers Big Sisters program. A coupon for a $10 haircut at Pure will be given to the customers who order the Pure burger.
Upon redemption, an additional $5 will be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters. Customers who order the Pure burger will also receive a chair massage in the parking lot.
In addition, DJ Craig Vanity will be in the parking lot taking song requests for a $1 donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters and there will be spray tans, bling strings and featherlock extensions available as well.
Don's Auto and Golf, Lehighton, will be donating Bavarian Cinnamon Nuts for the cause.
Fludgate and Potoczak's goal is to raise $1,000 from the proceeds for Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Potoczak encourages other businesses to select a cause and put on their own benefit.
"We wanted to challenge other businesses to raise funds and show that money can be reinvested back into the community," said Potoczak. He hopes to make the cook-off an annual event and is planning on doing another philanthropy event in the fall.
If businesses wish to donate to the burger benefit, they can contact Potoczak at (484) 357-6549 to help the cause, or if anyone is interested in helping out Big Brothers Big Sisters but cannot make it to the event, he or she can call the Castle Grill at (570) 732-0020 to purchase a gift card.
