All Thrifty Foods locations in Nanaimo – Port Place, Brooks Landing and Longwood Station – host Cobs for Cops, a Tour de Rock fundraiser on Saturday (July 27).

An armload of fresh corn on the cob – 10 ears for $1 – is available, as is a barbecue lunch by donation. All proceeds from corn and barbecue sales on Saturday go to the annual Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock, which raises money for research into childhood cancer and Camp Goodtimes.

Tour de Rock riders Const. Marie Bourque and Const. Misty Dmytar will be at the Port Place Thrifty Foods location on Saturday, along with live music, to help celebrate the completion of that location’s renovations.
