A popular Indianapolis foodie event that supports children’s education in the nation of Uganda is back. The 9th annual Indy Burger Battle kicks off Friday at nine participating restaurants.
Indy-based nonprofit Building Tomorrow says the fundraiser not only helps children in the African nation, but it also supports central Indiana restaurants still recovering from the pandemic.
“Building Tomorrow is so grateful to all Indy Burger Battle fans, Building Tomorrow supporters and participating restaurants, whether veteran or brand new, who have made the beloved competition a success for nine years running,” said George Srour, co-founder of Building Tomorrow.
Tickets for a “burger passport” allows customers to sample two slider-sized burgers from each participating restaurant. Ticket holders are encouraged to visit all nine competing restaurants and then vote for their favorite by August 1. The passports are $40 each.
Restaurants include Binkley’s Kitchen & Bar, Gallery Pastry Bar, Flamme Burger, Kilroy’s Bar N Grill, Smokehouse Catering Company, Spoke & Steele, BrewDog, Loughmiller’s Pub and Prodigy Burger Bar.
