A local festival is looking for burger loving volunteers - WMC Action News 5 - Memphis, Tennessee

Local festival seeks burger loving volunteers

(WMC-TV)-  An upcoming festival is calling on the help of burger lovers. Best Memphis Burger Fest is in need of volunteers for next month's festival.

About one year ago, the Best Memphis Burger blog was created to showcase some of the area's great tasting, but lesser known burgers. Now, the blog is branching out and starting a competition with teams of people to find the best burger in the city.

In order to help make this inaugural burger festival a success, organizers need your help before, during, and after the event.  About 30 volunteers that are 21 and older are needed to work different shifts.  They are looking for people to help with the fundraising, setup, t-shirt sales, competition assistance, and they also need judges for the contests.

The festival will have a cooking competition with four categories; an eating competition, pet adoptions, live music, food trucks and some vending. All proceeds raised from the festival will be donated to Mid-South Spay & Neuter Services. 

This competition is not only for restaurants. Anyone with a grill and a great burger recipe can enter.

The event will be held on Sunday, September 30, in the Minglewood Hall parking lot located on the corner of Madison Avenue and Willet Street.

For more information on the event, how to enter the contests, and how to volunteer, visit the Best Memphis Burger Fest website.
