Prince George BC – The “BurgersToBeatMS”  event  brought out  plenty of classic vehicles to the Westgate  location of A&W in Prince George this evening, all for a good cause.

Brent Martindale is the area manager for A & W and is  proud of  the  annual effort “Last year, at this location in  Westgate we did $71 hundred, and we were one of the top stores in B.C.  The year before was close to $10 thousand and we were top ten Canada.”

The Cruisin’ Classics car club in Prince George  plays a key role in the effort,   bringing some fine  vehicles  and their participation is one of the reasons why the campaign  is so successful in Prince George “We couldn’t do it without them” says Martindale, “They bring the cars,  and people  come to see the cars,  and  then  they grab  a burger.”

A&W  has been  raising funds for MS research, programs and support  for  those living with M.S.  for nearly a decade.   Nationally,  A&W has raised  $9 million dollars  for the cause “It’s been a great run. I love it” says Martindale.

$2 dollars  from the sale of every teen burger goes towards the cause,  and patrons were also  able to top up their bill by $1, $2 or $5 dollar donations.
