A huge shout out to the team at Breton Brewing Co.

This weekend they provided a great local product and an awful lot of entertainment with their #GiantBSelfie contest.

With the family fun atmosphere and the generosity of Cape Bretoners, this weekend was an incredible example of what our community can do.

Thank you to our Prime Ribber, Destination Membertou, as well as all the other amazing sponsors who made this event possible.

Your kindness and willingness to give made a big impact on healthcare in Cape Breton this weekend.
