Black Rock to host Cops for Cancer barbecue today

Local police will be cooking up a philanthropic storm at Ucluelet's Black Rock Resort on Sunday.

Local police are ready to serve up a West Coast barbecue spiced with a karma-boosting kick today.

Ucluelet’s Black Rock Resort will hold its second annual Cops for Cancer barbecue on Sunday, Oct. 25.

“Our local RCMP members come in and help barbecue up a storm,” said the resort’s general manager Adele Larkin adding the event’s proceeds will  go to Cops for Cancer.

“Obviously we hope it’s a big success because it goes to a great cause in helping to support the families of children who are struggling with this devastating disease,” Larkin said.

“We’re really hoping that everybody comes out and supports it and helps us generate a lot of funds for this great cause.”

The Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock riders cycle about 1,000 km across Vancouver Island to raise funds for pediatric cancer research and the effort has raised about $20 million since its inception in 1998, according to Cops for Cancer’s website.

Sunday’s event will kick off at 5:30 p.m. and neither the resort’s restaurant nor lounge will offer any menu options outside of the fundraising barbecue that day.
