Six chefs from Glowbal’s properties (Italian Kitchen, Coast, Sanafir, Trattoria, Glowbal Afterglow, and Society) will be preparing everything from beef brisket and ribs to potato salad, coleslaw and corn bread at Oppenheimer Park.

“With this event, we are strengthening our partnership with the Union Gospel Mission,” says Glowbal Collection Proprietor, Emad Yacoub. “A Texas BBQ is a high-spirited way to support outreach workers and connect with Vancouver’s people in difficulty and need.”

Members of the community are invited to stop by throughout the day as the meals will be served from 10:00am until 4:00pm. It’s a chance to meet neighbours, support community workers, and have some fun in the newly renovated park.

Glowbal and the UGM are currently looking for volunteers to help out at the event. If you’re able to head down to lend a hand, please contact [email protected].
