Kaladi’s last stand: winner in Burger Battle
Kaladi’s may no longer be a part of Hudson’s restaurant scene but they went out on a high note winning the Third Annual Hudson Area Burger Battle with all proceeds benefiting Bridge for Youth and Adults with Disabilities.
Along with Kaladi’s the contest participants included Dick’s Bar and Grill, Village Inn, Postmark Grille, Willow River Inn and Saloon and Season’s Tavern.
The event raised $4,825 for Bridge. The event is coordinated by several area business owners who also donate their services to promote the event. They are Pete Keskey of Minuteman Press, Craig and Mary Hofland of is.it.2B Marketing and Jeremy Lilyquist of Solar Sportsman.
In addition the restaurants donate a portion of their proceeds to the effort.
Bridge Executive Director Peg Gagnon said the event an important fundraiser for the organization but also serves to raise the group’s profile in the community.
“We really appreciate the work that goes into the event and the restaurants that participate. It is a fun way to generate business for our local restaurants and to get our name out there,” Gagnon said.
