Best burger contest to benefit Buddy Program

Aspen Magazine, CP Burger and the Buddy Program are teaming up to find the best-tasting, best-looking burger made by kids who live in the Roaring Fork Valley.

The winning creation will be placed on the menu at CP Burger to help spread awareness and raise funds for the Buddy Program, a nonprofit group that promotes mentoring.

“We’re very excited to be teaming up with CP Burger and our longtime partner Aspen Magazine for this contest,” David Houggy, executive director of the Buddy Program, said in a statement. “This is such a fun and creative way to make more people aware of the important work that the Buddy Program does.”

Entering your own burger creation is simple. Go to cpbuddyburger to fill out an online form that explains your culinary creation before Dec. 1. The children with the top five burgers will be invited to a “cook off” at CP Burger, where each entry will be prepared, tasted and judged by an expert panel.

The winning burger will be put on the menu for the early winter season and the winner will be featured in the mid-winter issue of Aspen Magazine.

For every winning burger sold, CP Burger will donate 20 percent of the proceeds to the Buddy Program.

Contestants must be 18 years or younger and live in the Roaring Fork Valley to enter. All entries are due before midnight Dec. 1. No purchase is required to enter and only one entry may be made per person.
