Regional chefs battle at Riverside Park for the title of best burger

The third annual Riverfest Burger Bash was held Saturday afternoon at Riverside Park in downtown La Crosse.

A panel of local judges ruled on who won the burger competition.

A people’s choice vote was available to those who purchased a $10 burger-sampling ticket.

Proceeds from the event are going to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater La Crosse.

“The first year kicked off — we raised 1,000 dollars for La Crosse Community Thanksgiving Dinner, and then last year we raised 2,000 dollars for Wafer. And this year we hope to raise even more money in this fundraiser,” Said Michelle Jerome, marketing manager for Reinhart Foodservice

The Burger Bash is sponsored by Reinhart Foodservice.
