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
