For every $5 raised at its Beavercreek and Centerville locations, City Barbeque, the winner of’s Best of Dayton barbecue category, will provide a slow-smoked sandwich and two homemade sides valued at $12 to a health care worker at Kettering Medical Center.

"We are grateful to medical professionals nationwide working around the clock to keep us all safe," Rick Malir, founder and CEO of the chain headquartered in Dublin, Ohio, said as part of a press release. "This is a great opportunity to show health care workers in our communities how much we appreciate them, and we're pleased to partner with our guests in showing our thanks."
