September beneficiaries –

September has seen the BCHF support several new applicants.  It is interesting to note that 3 are from Vancouver Island and 2 from Nanaimo.  We have had proportionately  more beneficiaries on the Island than from other regions in the province.

This month the following have received support:

Oracle Arrand – Chaise Lounge & Maenam, Vancouver – server -$2,000

Lynn Skates, Black Bear Pub, Nanaimo, cook – $2,000

Nolan Murphy,   Firehouse Grill & Asteras, Nanaimo – the BCHF will match funds raised at an October event, up to $5,000

TIna Overgaard, Uclelet, Offshore Restaurant, owner – $5,000
