The BCHF was founded on the idea that we in the hospitality industry would work together to help our own. Two fundraisers this summer are a perfect example of this idea. Both events were organized by the friends and colleagues of people in need, and the BCHF matched funds raised to a pre-agreed maximum amount.
- July 27th – a beer social and silent auction was held in East Vancouver for Justin Vickaryous, the Director of Brewery Operations at Red Truck Beer, whose wife has cancer.
- July 29th – Amy, Cherie and Sarah hosted a family-friendly fundraiser for Julie Rempel, at Matsqui Village Park. Julie is facing a second brain tumour.
