M&M Meat Shops Chairty BBQ Day
all M&M Meat Shops locations
Saturday, May 12, 2012
10am - 4pm
On Saturday, May 12, 2012, between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., visit any of the more than 450 M&M Meat Shops locations across Canada to support the 24th Annual M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day benefiting Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC).
M&M Meat Shops’ franchisees, staff and thousands of volunteers from coast-to-coast will be manning their grills to meet the 24th Anniversary Charity BBQ Day fundraising goal of $1.5 million. Supporters will receive a hamburger or hot dog, a drink and a bag of chips for a minimum donation of $3. All food and time is donated, so every penny raised goes directly to CCFC Crohn’s and colitis research.
For an additional $2, supporters can cool down by purchasing a delicious M&M Meat Shops Strawberry Shortcake Bar with proceeds donated to CCFC.
Canada has among the highest incidence of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis - two similar yet distinct conditions also known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) - in the world. Despite this high incidence, IBD is still veiled in silence and shame. There are more than 200,000 Canadians suffering from IBD. It is a painful and unpredictable disorder. There is no known cause or cure and the number of cases continues to grow.
