BBBSO’s BIG BBQ Summer Series
July 16 - 30, 2020
Your Back Yards
Get out your grilling gear and join us for a series of BBQ nights in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters Ottawa! Thursdays in July (starting July 16th) we will be hosting virtual BBQ nights with special celebrity guests and established chefs!
A Virtual Event that Sizzles!
Each event will be led by a professional chef from Cheftorial, who will provide an interactive cooking class LIVE from their own personal BBQ AND each evening’s celebrity host will also join and cook along from their back yards!
Family/Individual Event Registration $50 per household
As an individual/family participant, you will be able to interact virtually with the chef, our celebrity hosts and their guests, as well as other attendees. It’s an excellent chance to hang with good friends in your personal bubble AND virtually, should they also sign up, or a great date night idea, or a fun family-friendly activity.
Corporate Team Event Registration $1200 for unlimited households
As a corporate participant, you have the opportunity to ‘buy out’ the entire event as a unique team building event with unlimited computers/households OR consider the possibilities for a huge virtual family reunion or personal event with several friends all together!

A freshly unique and intimate event concept from the comfort of your own back yard, you will not only be learning to cook alongside a professional chef and hanging out virtually with a fun local celebrity; you will most importantly be paying it forward and DIRECTLY funding mentorship matches right here in the community, helping young people facing adversity get through these challenging times. Let’s eat, Ottawa!
“I took part in the BIG BBQ Summer series last week. It was so enjoyable to see other participants and speak directly with Chef Kent and the sommelier and of course to cook alongside in real time. I enjoyed it so much that immediately after eating the dinner I had made I telephoned my friends to suggest that they may want to try this too. It was such a great evening. Looking forward to taking part in the July 30th barbeque!” – Catheren
