May 21, 2014 (Etobicoke, ON) – With the cold weather in the rearview mirror and the warmer temperatures finally inching closer, the team at the Great Lakes Brewery would like to formally announce plans for their 11th Annual Charity BBQ!
On Saturday May 24, 2014 from 12-5pm, Great Lakes Brewery, located at 30 Queen Elizabeth Blvd in Etobicoke, will transform into a small fairgrounds of sorts for an afternoon of live musical entertainment, BBQ food, kids games, raffle prizes, the Toronto Argonauts and some cheerleaders, GLB brewery history booth, beer games and of course, a fully stocked Great Lakes beer garden.
“Our annual Charity BBQ is something that we look forward to each year and we’re planning on making the 2014 edition, which is also the 11th annual BBQ, the best one to date,” said Peter Bulut. Jr., the President and Chief Brewing Officer of Great Lakes.
As in years past, brewery employees and a number of dedicated and passionate volunteers will be on hand to provide hot dogs and hamburgers, facilitate arts and crafts for children and to help organize games and activities. The BBQ will also allow individuals to sample some of Great Lakes award-winning beers like Crazy Canuck Pale Ale, Red Leaf Lager, Limp Puppet Session IPA and maybe a couple new beers while listening to live local musicians.
“It also pleases us to announce that we’re very happy to continue our ongoing relationship with the amazing people at the Franklin Horner Community Centre, who give so much back to the community,” said Bulut.
All proceeds raised throughout the day will be donated to the Franklin Horner Community Centre in Etobicoke, which help fund programs and services to individuals in South Etobicoke.
