ORLANDO, Fla. — Wahlburgers Downtown Orlando has ended its fundraiser and will donate $50,403 to the #OneOrlando Fund. The restaurant raised $25,402 in t-shirt sales, and Donnie Wahlberg personally contributed an additional $25,000. A check presentation ceremony with the mayor and city officials is planned, and will be held at a future date pending Donnie Wahlberg’s schedule.

Donnie Wahlberg says, “I’m so grateful to the many generous guests of #Wahlburgers who purchased #OrlandoStrong t-shirts to help the victims still struggling in the wake of the horrible Pulse tragedy. Your generosity has inspired me so much that I am personally donating an additional $25,000 raising the total sum to the victims and their families to $50,000.”

“As a society, we often move on very quickly from such tragedies while the victims and their loved ones, most of whom will be affected forever, continue on the long and painful road to recovery and healing. Hopefully this donation will assist in that healing, and also serve as a reminder that there are still many victims struggling to rebuild their lives who need our continued financial and emotional support,” concludes Wahlberg.

“My family has a long history in this community, and our thoughts and prayers are forever with the victims and their families,” says Franchisee Gina Buell. “We want to personally thank our guests who purchased the t-shirts, our community for coming out in such strength, as well as our Wahlburgers family for their support. The logo that was designed for the #OrlandoStrong Wahlburgers t-shirt shows the peace, loveand strength between Boston and Orlando, two cities affected by senseless tragedies,” concludes Buell.

The long awaited Wahlburgers Orlando is finally open and Mark and Paul Wahlberg were there for all the festivities. Hundreds of fans lined up around the Orange Ave location to catch a glimpse of the Wahlberg brothers as they walked the red carpet.

The event featured live entertainment, giveaways and free samples. One of the most talked about items on the menu is the new Orlando Dreamsicle drink, an adult frappe made with vanilla vodka, triple sec, orange juice and ice cream that Wahlburgers has created exclusively for the new location.

Bringing a restaurant to Orlando has been on the Wahlberg brothers’ minds for quite some time. Mark has even talked about expanding to 3000 locations all across the US.  [icflorida.com]

Go tell ya’ mother: Wahlburgers opens downtown, VIP event details released

Wahlburgers, the celebrity burger joint, is open after a short delay and is readying for a VIP party Thursday featuring at least two of the famous brothers.

The restaurant at 200 S. Orange Ave. started serving a few customers over the weekend, bringing the Boston-based fast-casual burger concept to downtown Orlando.

The official opening comes days ahead of a VIP event where actor Mark Wahlberg and chef Paul Wahlberg are confirmed to attend. Donnie Wahlberg, star of Blue Bloods and the former New Kids on the Block member, is still waiting to see if he is able to attend.

The private invitation VIP event at Wahlburgers will coincide with a public concert event from 7 p.m. to midnight. The concert event will close Church Street to traffic nearly the entire day Thursday.

Gina Buell, the franchisee for Wahlburgers Orlando, said Paul and Mark Wahlberg are expected to make appearances at the public event.

Wahlburgers’ new 6,000-square-foot location is in the SunTrust Building in downtown Orlando, at the corner of Church Street and Orange Ave.
