Meat shop fires up barby for fundraiser

It's time for the annual M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day.

It is barbecue season again and time for the annual M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day.

On May 12, people can get a hamburger or hotdog, a drink and a bag of chips by donation at the store on Mary Ellen Drive, with proceeds benefitting the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada.

All food and staff time is donated.

The charity barbecue is the foundation’s largest annual fundraising activity by any single supporter – over the past 23 years, M&M Meat Shops has raised more than $21.5 million for medical research dedicated to finding a cure for inflammatory bowel disease.
