Media Alert - LCBO Queens Quay BBQ helps send kids with cancer to camp



    TORONTO, June 3 /CNW/ -

    
    WHAT:  The LCBO Queens Quay store and its suppliers are presenting their
           18th annual barbecue in support of Camp Oochigeas, a year-round
           camp for children affected by childhood cancer. The barbecue is
           open to the public and all proceeds go to the camp.

           LCBO President & CEO Bob Peter and Queens Quay store staff will
           present Camp Oochigeas Chair Howard Breen and Executive Director
           Rob Drynan with a cheque for $135,000. This represents donations
           from suppliers participating in LCBO in-store tastings and
           anticipated proceeds from this year's barbecue. With this
           donation, the LCBO and its suppliers will have raised more than $1
           million for the camp in the last 18 years.

           Fundraising activities include skill-testing games and a silent
           auction.

           Located on a private lake outside Rosseau, Ontario, Camp Ooch, as
           it is affectionately called by the kids, offers eight weeks of
           summer camp for children with cancer. It also provides weekends at
           camp throughout the fall and winter, day camp programs and year-
           round programming at The Hospital for Sick Children and in the
           community. Camp Ooch remains the only residential camp in Ontario
           to provide on-site chemotherapy and blood transfusions.
