This summer... LITE Up the Grill!

We need your help to raise $20,000 and create 70 jobs this summer


"LITE Up the Grill" is a fundraiser taking place over July and August that will help provide jobs for people living in Winnipeg’s inner city. It will also be a time for you to socialize with your friends and community! We are asking Winnipeggers interested in fighting poverty and inequality to host a community BBQ this summer and donate funds raised to LITE.
