IT’S BACK!!!!

The United Way of Thunder Bay is proud to announce the return of the 3rd Annual Novemburger in support of the United Way this November! We are juicing things up this fall by bringing new business to our amazing local eateries, all while raising funds for individuals, families, children, and seniors in our community and around the region! What better way to do this, then by focusing on the greatest invention of all time … BURGERS!

Over the last 2 years, an outstanding 10,300+ Novemburgers have been sold by participating restaurants! This event is becoming a community favourite that people look forward to every fall!

AND NOW, we are excited to announce that we are expanding into KENORA too and restaurants will be participating from that community too!!

Don’t forget your passport!

Download and print your Novemburger 2021 Passport 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 in Thunder Bay 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 emikkola@uwaytbay.ca by December 6th 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 and Kenora 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 (Thunder Bay only)!

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

  • One for the most Novemburgers sold (Thunder Bay & Kenora)
  • One for the Top Novemburger of the Year (Thunder Bay only)

We want to see ALL your fun Novemburger outings! Don’t forget to take a fun photo while eating your Novemburgers and share it, using #Novemburgeruwaytbay!
