Eating delicious burgers while donating to a good cause. What beats that?

The Ellsworth Area Burger Battle is back with Clyde's Corner looking to retain its title from last year.

The Burger Battle is a partnership between seven area restaurants and the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Pierce County. There are punch cards available for a $30 donation at each restaurant. These punch cards can be filled by trying each restaurant's burger.
