The United Way of Thunder Bay is proud to announce the return of the 2nd Annual Novemburger in support of our community this November! We are juicing things up this fall by bringing new business to our amazing local eateries, all while raising funds for the United Way! What better way to do this, then by focusing on the greatest invention of all time … BURGERS! Last year, we launched this event and 11 participating restaurants collectively sold over 3,900 Novemburgers and with your support almost $13,000 was raised! It was a HUGE hit in the community and we’re hoping to make this year even bigger and better than the last!

Don’t forget your passport!

Download and print your Novemburger 2020 Passport HERE or visit our United Way office to pick one up. Take it with you on your delicious journey around town and get it stamped at each Platinum Sponsor location once you’ve eaten their burger. If you collect up to 5 stamps, drop your passport off at the United Way office or scan and email it to by December 7th for a chance to win a $25 gift card from each Platinum Sponsor location (Grand Prize Value of $200)!

Here’s how it works.

Order a signature Novemburger at participating Thunder Bay restaurants throughout the month of November. For every burger sold, $2.00 will be donated to the United Way.

Then rate what you ate here and vote for the Top Novemburger of the Year!

At the end of the month, two winners will be announced:

  • One for the most Novemburgers sold
  • One for the Top Novemburger of the Year

Don’t forget to take a fun photo while eating the burger and share it with the #Novemburgeruwaytbay for a chance to win the opportunity to be the face of Novemburger 2021!
