Lincoln-Way High Schools Face Off in Burger Battle
Thursday, October 15, 2015

Lincoln-Way High Schools will face off in a Burger Battle next week. Each schools music department chair has created a special burger at Meatheads in Frankfort and 15 percent of the proceeds from the Lincoln-Way burgers sold from October 20-27 will be donated to the schools music programs.

On October 20 at 6:30 p.m., Lincoln-Way teams consisting of a student, staff member and PTA member will compete in a burger eating competition. The team with the lowest time wins and its burger will be offered on Meatheads menu for a month.

We are grateful for the support of Meatheads for sponsoring this fun competition to rally the community behind Lincoln-Way music programs, said Bert Johnson, Lincoln-Way East music department chair. This is a popular fundraiser because it combines the love of music and burgers.

The four Lincoln-Way burgers are the Lincoln-Way Central 1954 Classic with American Cheese, fries, lettuce, tomato, raw onion, pickles and 1000 Island; Lincoln-Way East the Griffins Beak with bacon, American cheese, bbq sauce, jalapenos, pickles and Cajun fries; Lincoln-Way North Its Good to Be Gold with bacon, cheddar cheese, ketchup, regular fries, pickles and lettuce and the Lincoln-Way West Western Throwback with bacon, chili, ketchipotle, and grilled onions.

Meatheads is located at 11143 W. Lincoln Highway in Frankfort.

Meatheads is truly happy to be able to partner up with all four Lincoln-Way schools yet again this year, said Robert Hack, field marketing manager for Meatheads. This is by far one of the biggest events we have each year and we are thrilled to support each school's music department. The only question we have now is; Who's gonna win?"
