It’s been said that the only thing better than enjoying a burger and beer is enjoying a burger and beer for a great cause. And you can do just that on Wednesday evening, Oct. 5, from 5 to 9 p.m. at Union Street Grill & Grotto.

Union Street is partnering with the John Howard Society KidStart program for an evening of the aforementioned burgers and beer (or alternate beverage), plus a silent auction, live music by members of the band Non Stop Talk and jovial good times with other supporters of local youth. Tickets are just $20, with a $15 kids’ option that includes pop, juice or milk. Gluten-free and vegetarian options will also be available.

All proceeds of the event will support the John Howard KidStart mentoring program for youth in the Comox Valley and Campbell River. This volunteer-based program focuses on the positive development of kids who could benefit from having stable and committed adults in their lives.

“We’re proud to support KidStart and the work they do to help local kids,” says Che Ligertwood, one of the managers of Union Street Grill and Grotto. “The KisdStart program relies on funding, grants, and gaming revenue to do what they do, and there’s a waitlist of kids needing a KidStart mentor. We just want to help.”

For tickets to the event, call 250-338-7341. More information about the KidStart program can be found online at http://www.jhsni.bc.ca.

“This community is important to us,” says Ligertwood. “We have a lot of community spirit and really enjoy opening our doors to local charities and organizations doing great things.”

Union Street Grill & Grotto is located at 477 5th Street in downtown Courtenay. The family-friendly restaurant offers a diverse lunch and dinner menu seven days a week, along with its popular gluten-free and take-out menus.

To find out more about Union Street’s community engagement—or to make a reservation—call 250-897-0081 or visit www.unionstreetgrill.ca.
