Mo-ing through free burgers
AT 2pm each day Grill’d at Coolangatta prepares itself for a moustache onslaught.
As a sponsor of the annual Movember campaign for men’s health, Grill’d offers free burgers to ‘Mo Bros’ who have raised at least $25 for the cause.
Grill’d Coolangatta business manager George Frantis said he had noticed an increase in ‘mos’ compared to last year’s effort, and plenty of healthy burgers have been given away.
“We have had a very positive response to Movember; it is great these guys have all raised $25 for the Movember charities,” Mr Frantis said.
“We notice an increase in customers at around 2pm when the promotion starts, and a number of moustached gentlemen come in.
“They are always in high spirits and making the restaurant a lot more lively – it is great to see.”
Mr Frantis said there was no doubt the campaign was making a difference in the community.
“A lot of people didn’t know about it and they ask what it’s about when they see all the mos. And everyone who is growing a mo knows what it is about and the charity behind it.”
Store owner Paul Milner said he was more than happy to take a bite out of profits this month in support of men’s health issues.
“Grill’d has been supporting Movember since 2006, and every year it gets bigger and better. It’s really satisfying to be a part of such a worthwhile charity, have fun along the way and reward all the Mo Bros raising money for the cause,” Paul said.
“We’re offering one burger per day for each person, and we expect to give out 1000 free burgers during the promotion.”
Tomorrow is the last day Grill’d is offering free burgers to Mo Bros, as the offer runs from November 10 to 22.
All a Mo Bro needs to do is register at movember.com.au, then raise $25 to gain access to free burgers. Mo Bros can display their mos and “Tash Ticket” at any Grill’d restaurant between 2pm and 4pm or 8pm to 10pm each day
