Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo is helping benefit Boston Medical Center in a pretty sweet way: with the purchase of a Shake Shack milkshake.
The Patriots co-captain has teamed up with the New York-based burger chain and pastry chef Joanne Chang (owner of the acclaimed Flour Bakery) for a Boston-specific treat.
Dubbed the “LineShacker,’’ the concoction combines Shake Shack’s creamy vanilla custard with Flour’s pecan sticky bun and is topped with whipped cream and brown sugar cinnamon toasted pecans.
“I am thrilled to be partnering with Shake Shack on Mayo’s LineShacker. I take my kids to Shake Shack all the time and to know that they care about the community in which they operate as much as I do means a great deal to me,’’ Mayo said in an email. “I have been involved with Boston Medical Center for the past 6 years and the work they do is just incredible.’’
Mayo has raised over $1 million for Boston Medical Center through his celebrity bowling tournament, “The Mayo Bowl.’’
The LineShacker will be available at Shake Shack’s four Boston area locations — Newbury, Chestnut Hill, Dedham, and Harvard Square — from now through January 31 for $5.75, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Boston Medical Center.
