Grilling hot dogs to help charity

Up to 50 per cent of sales at Audrey's Dogs is donated to the B.C. branch of the Kidney Foundation of Canada

Audrey’s Dogs has moved to a new location on Wallace Street.

The mobile business was started in May by Brenda Bray and Dennis Bishop at the Sixth Avenue farmer’s market. In an effort to attract more customers to help their fundraising initiative, they relocated to the grass area next to Bee’s Food Market last week. Up to 50 per cent of sales is donated to the B.C. branch of the Kidney Foundation of Canada.

“When my mom passed, this was one way to keep her name alive and also give back,” said Bray. “It’s one way to legally help do more for the Foundation as they did so much for mom. It’s my way of paying it forward.”

Audrey’s Dogs offers freshly barbecued hot dogs with chips and a pop for $3.50, or $6.25 with a smokie. Fresh fruit, juice boxes and bottled water are also available. Audrey’s Dogs is fully licensed and insured, and FoodSafe certified.

Bray and Bishop are set up next to Bee’s Food Market (536 Wallace St.) Tuesday through Friday, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. until September. They can also be found at community events throughout the summer.

Next year, Bray plans to run Audrey’s Dogs from April to September, and raise funds for the Canadian Diabetes Association in B.C.
