KALISPELL- Barbecue venues from around the Flathead Valley competed for the unofficial title of Grill Master on Saturday, but it wasn't your typical cook-off.
The competition was part of a fundraiser for the local women's violence-free crisis line and Abbie Shelter with proceeds from food and drink sales will help benefit the non-profit.
Several bands agreed to perform at the event for free, including local favorites-Marshall Catch, who are used to playing in front of a much bigger crowd.
Band members say no matter the number of people, it was important to support a cause that has helped support several people in their own lives.
"If it's something to help a great cause, we're up for it. This is just something that's good and that needs to be supported. We're really hoping the community steps out and realizes this is something that's important," Marshall Catch bass player Aidan Foshay said.
Abbie Shelter staff hope the money raised from the event will help fund their efforts for the next several months.
