Director of Marketing for Habitat Grand Traverse, Tom Kachadurian, says he’s grateful for Etna Supply’s generosity.

“The kind of money they are going to raise tonight means a lot to us,” Kachadurian states.

People could try burgers from the four teams and donate to which team they thought had the best one.

“We had a lot of fun tonight,” Kachadurian says. “You don’t have to throw a $50 bill in a jar for a hamburger unless you really are motivated to help people and that’s what happened out here today.”Vodmp400 00 54 26still002
