How You Can Enjoy Wine, Beer, or Spirits and Support the BC Hospitality Foundation

BCHF logoAs you may know hospitality workers in BC have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.  They can fortunately get CERB money from the Federal government.  But there are also hospitality workers that suffer from severe illness and need more support.  This is where the BC Hospitality Foundation comes in.  Donations to the BCHF go towards hospitality workers facing financial crisis due to a health condition. Each year hundreds of hospitality workers across BC face financial challenges and have no where else to turn.
