ST. PETE BEACH – In honor of National Child Abuse Awareness Month, Boulevard Burgers & Tap House has teamed up with Angels Against Abuse to raise funds for the organization’s local foster care system.
The St. Pete restaurant has released The Pretzilla Burger, an 8-ounce Boulevard Burger featuring pepper jack cheese, fried jalapeno poppers and a spicy chipotle sauce wrapped into a soft pretzel bun. One dollar for every burger sold this April will go straight to the charity.
“This news is so exciting,” said Sandy Kearney, founder of Angels Against Abuse, in a press release. “Thank you and your staff at Boulevard Burgers for choosing Angels Against Abuse as their local charity for National Abuse Awareness Month. Children are our future, and it is only thanks to businesses and organizations like yours that give hope to these children for a better tomorrow for the children and youth who are victims of child abuse and neglect. From the bottom of our hearts, the Angels thank you for helping us to help them!”
During the first week of May, the restaurant will present the charity with a check, and they’re asking for the public’s help in increasing those numbers.
“We’re looking forward to helping out Angels Against Abuse in any way we can,” said Charles Marco, owner of Boulevard Burgers. “The burger is delicious and we’re already getting a lot of positive feedback, so we foresee the fundraiser being a success. We also love kids and families, so we hope this effort will reinforce that message.”
Boulevard Burgers is at 5905 Gulf Blvd., St. Pete Beach.
