Whether you’re planning to dine in at your fave eatery, enjoy some convenient take-out, or relax at a local bar, you can help our community just by adding a tasty beverage to your order!  Import agency Andrew Peller Limited is stepping up to help our local hospitality industry, which continues to struggle due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19.  Until December 31, 2020, the BC-based company will donate partial proceeds from sales of select wine, cider, beer, and whisky brands to the BCHF and Food Banks BC.

When we work together towards a common goal, we can accomplish greatness. This is the motto for Okanagan Crush Pad and Everything Wine, who have joined forces to raise money for the BC Hospitality Foundation through the sales of the 2018 Many Hands Rosé, a one-time only production.

Many Hands Rosé will be available at Everything Wine store-front locations and online. $1 from every bottle sold (or $12 for every case) will be donated to the BCHF.

Rust Wine Co. has just released 6-packs of its 2019 Gamay Noir Magnum (1.5l). $5.00 per bottle of the wine will be donated to the BCHF. You can purchase the magnums of Rust Wine Co.’s 2019 Gamay Noir online.

Monthly donors

We love hosting fundraising events, and we welcome one-time donations, but we also rely on our valued monthly donors to provide a small but steady stream of revenue for our organization.  If you can support the BCHF’s work on an ongoing basis, please consider joining our proud monthly donors’ group.  JUST CLICK HERE  Tax receipts are issued at the end of each year.

Payroll deduction program

At the core of the BCHF’s work is the idea that we in the hospitality industry look after our own.  One of the ways we can do this is through payroll deduction programs.  Employees can contribute as little as $1 a week, and the program increases awareness of the BCHF at the same time as it raises funds.  All individuals who donate $25 or more over the course of a year receive a tax receipt for their contributions.  And of course it’s great when employers set an example by also signing up!  Email Judy at for an easy-to-use package to start your program.
