Burger Deluxe Serving Up Sandy Relief

Burger Deluxe is helping to raise money for families affected by Superstorm Sandy.

Until Monday, Feb. 11, the restaurant will donate all of the proceeds from the sales of the Hurricane Sandy Relief Burger to the Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.

The non-profit organization, chaired by First Lady Mary Pat Christie, has helped to raise more than $32 million to help New Jersey families recover from what was called the worst storm in the state’s history. The storm left unseen devistation along the Jersey Shore.

“It’s been three months since Sandy hit New Jersey and our state is still a long way from total recovery,” said Burger Deluxe manager Zeki Yesilyurt. “As a local business, it’s our responsibility to help and we’re happy to provide residents with an easy and tasty way to get involved.”

The half-pound burger costs $9.75. It features beef, sausage, peppers, onions, provolone cheese, lettuce, tomato, and pickles. It’s served with a side of boardwalk-cut French fries.

“We’re proud to have a number of community partners like Burger Deluxe working with us to support New Jersey’s rebuilding process in the wake of Sandy and helping us to raise funds in creative ways,” Christie said in a statement.

Burger Deluxe is located at 1420 Route 23 North. The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
