Help Kids, Attend Uintah Basin Shrine Club 61st Annual BBQ This Sunday

The Uintah Basin Shrine Club Annual BBQ is an opportunity to help children in need. The event marks 61 years of helping the Shriners’ Hospitals for Children in Salt Lake City. Clinics are held every year in the Basin in which children in need are selected to receive medical care at no cost to them or their parents. Ten kids from the Basin will be receiving world class medical treatment after attending the clinic in June. The BBQ will be held at the Vernal City Park Colton Pavilion on Sunday, August 12th, from noon until 5pm. Adult tickets cost $10 dollars per person while children 8 years and under are free.
