A Vernon establishment is grilling up a chance to help a North Okanagan organization.

Match Eatery and Public House at Vernon’s  Lake City Casino in Vernon invites everyone to their second annual charity barbecue for the Kindale Developmental Association on Sunday from noon to 3 p.m.

For a $10 donation,  participants will receive a delicious barbecue burger lunch courtesy of the culinary team at Match, as well as cake, $10 in free play (for adults only) and a chance to win a deluxe gift basket.

Live entertainment will graciously be provided again this year by the Shawn Lightfoot Band.

“Vernon Lake City Casino is very proud to be able to help this organization in such a positive way,” said Clay Riley, Lake City Casinos’ general manager.

“Everyone is welcome, and kids under 12 eat free. Let’s all show our support.”

For more than 53 years, Kindale has been thriving and adapting to the changing needs and desires of individuals with developmental disabilities.

“We are excited that Lake City Casino has chosen Kindale Developmental Association as the beneficiary of their charity barbecue event,” said Cindy Masters, Kindale development officer.

“Lake City Casino’s generous support enables us to enrich our services, particularly in the area of employment training and support for individuals with disabilities who have a strong desire for a real job for real pay.

“I’d like to invite the Kindale family and everyone in the community  of all ages to join us.”

Last year’s barbecue raised more than $9,500.
