M&M Meat Shops barbecue fundraiser underway in Castlegar

Proceeds benefit the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada

M&M Meat Shops in Castlegar is the place to be for good eats today during the 25th anniversary of M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day benefiting the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC).

Castlegar mayor Lawrence Chernoff is assisting on the grill as owners David and Brandi Grantham and their staff are busy taking donations and making sure everyone is served.

The barbecue runs until 4 p.m. and the M&M Meat Shop franchise is located at 635 Columbia Avenue in Castlegar, beside the Kootenay Market.

The fundraising goal for all the stores this year is $1.3 million. The charity barbecue has grown into CCFC’s largest annual fundraising activity by any single supporter, with more than $23.1 million for medical research being raised over the past 24 years.

Supporters will receive a hamburger or hot dog, a drink and a bag of chips for a minimum donation of $3.

All proceeds raised will go directly to Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis research.
