A burger was more than just a tasty treat for Two Kings Burgers customers on Monday with the store donating all of the day's proceeds to a local family.
Two Kings Burgers owner Travis Owen said he and the staff opted to donate their time and the day's takings to the Dowie family to help them and son Noah, 4, attend a medical camp in the US.
Noah has Diamond Blackfan Anaemia (DBA), an extremely rare blood condition that affects about 20 Australians and about 1000 patients worldwide.
Noah's family has the chance to have a consultation with one of only a handful of DBA specialists worldwide at Camp Sunshine in the US in July.
Mr Owen said they would trade until they ran out of food on Monday night and hoped to raise upwards of $4000 for the family.
Mr Owen said they were overwhelmed with the suppliers and local community's generosity, with businesses donating more than $4000 worth of food, vouchers, raffle and silent auction items.
"Everything's been donated by our suppliers and 100 per cent of the takings are going back to the family," Mr Owen said. "It's been awesome that everyone's been able to chip in and get it all happening.
"We're set to sell about 250 to 280 burgers for the day. If we can do that it would be around the $4500 to $5000 mark."
Mr Owen said he knew the family and wanted to do something to help.
"We could do something that raised $300 or $400 but I said 'if we can get everything donated we could give the whole lot to them'.
"It's usually a day off we would have had. It's not running into our trade and everyone's got behind it really well."
Mum Kristy Dowie said the family continued to be overwhelmed and so grateful to those running fundraisers and to the businesses and community for their support.
A Baker's Delight hot cross bun fundraiser on April 6, where two dollars from every six pack of hot cross buns at the East Warrnambool store was donated to the family, raised more than $2500 for the family.
Port Fairy's Bridgid Madden, who ran her first half marathon in Geelong on Sunday, has also raised more than $5600 for the family.
There is another fundraising event for Noah at Warrnambool's Spotlight store on Tuesday.
Warrnambool's Lola McCarthy, 10, will be in store, making and selling scrunchies, for her fundraising event Shaving for Sunshine. Lola will have her head shaved on May 6 and will donate the proceeds to the family. Her Go Fund Me page has already raised more than $4000.
Spotlight manager Anne-Maree Cook said the staff wanted to show their support for Lola and the Dowie family and Lola would be in store on Tuesday between 11am and 1pm.
"We will have fabric cut up and the community can come out and either purchase one or take them home and make them as well," Mrs Cook said.
"I hope people support it. When we've had knitting parties and done knitting for the community, people really get behind those so let's hope they get behind the sewing too. The scrunchies are simple to make."
