Indy Burger Battle
July 31 @ 11:00 am - August 9 @ 11:30 pm$35
Building Tomorrow, an Indianapolis-based nonprofit that works to promote quality, inclusive education for children in rural Uganda, has switched up its popular annual fundraiser, the friendly competition known as the “Indy Burger Battle,” in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. From July 31 through August 9, ten restaurants in the Indianapolis area will be serving their own set of signature sliders (available through dine-in or carry-out) and ticket holders can taste each to decide whose is the most scrumptious and most deserving of the “People’s Choice Champion” title. Tickets to a burger “passport”, valid for two slider-sized burgers from all participating restaurants, are $35 each and can be purchased at IndyBurgerBattle.com.
Presented by Red Gold, competitors in the 2020 Indy Burger Battle include the reigning Critics’ Choice Champion, Flamme Burger, the reigning People’s Choice Champion, Spoke & Steele, Binkley’s Kitchen & Bar, Broad Ripple Brew Pub, Burgerhaus, Gallery Pastry Shop (Downtown location only), Kilroy’s Bar & Grill (Broad Ripple and Downtown locations), Ralston’s Drafthouse, Rush on Main (Zionsville and Brownsburg locations), and Smokehouse Catering Company. More restaurants may be added prior to the start of the battle on July 31. Restaurants will serve their sliders during normal business hours, through dine-in or carry-out, and beverages, sides, and other items will be available for additional purchase.
All proceeds from Indy Burger Battle ticket sales will benefit event organizer and Indianapolis-based nonprofit Building Tomorrow and its vision of a world where all children have access to an inclusive, transformative education, while increasing support for Indy-area restaurants we all know and love.
