Milwaukee Burger Co. burning Favre gear for charity


Eau Claire (WQOW) - A famous quarterback could help raise a lot of money in Eau Claire next week because he's so unpopular right now.

The Milwaukee Burger Company in Eau Claire is hosting a burning party during halftime of Monday's Packers-Vikings game. For every piece of Brett Favre memorabilia someone brings to burn, $10 will be donated to support a camp for young burn victims. The restaurant says it's an opportunity for fans to show team spirit, while giving to a good cause.

"There's a lot of controversy among our regulars," Milwaukee Burger Co. General Manager Julie Kolk says. "We have some Vikings fans and some Packer fans. We just decided to have some sort of party, and this is the one that came to mind. We thought it could be really fun, and we thought we could help a good cause at the same time."

The restaurant plans to have a burn barrel in the parking lot on Monday night. The Milwaukee Burger Company says you can bring as many Favre items as you like.
