In view of the ongoing COVID19 pandemic, we have to cancel our event for 2020. 

Eventbrite is processing all refunds (it will take between 7 and 10 days to show on our statement). Please let us know if you have any issues.

We are looking forward to coming back in 2021 with a wonderful event! Stay tuned.
INDUSTRY SUPPORT
We’re very grateful for the help we’re receiving from our friends in the hospitality industry, but unfortunately it won’t make up for the revenue we’ve lost as a result of having to cancel scheduled fundraising events. We are thinking strategically so we’ll be able to continue to do the work we love, and that will continue to be needed in the future. 

Thanks to everyone for their support during this challenging time!

The BCHF is based on the idea that we in the hospitality industry should help our own – and we’re delighted that during the challenge of COVID-19 we’re getting so much support from wineries, restaurants, and more. 

You can help by choosing to make purchases that support our supporters! 

Below is a list of promotions currently running that benefit the BCHF.
NEW

Limited Edition of 30th Vintage Rose Magnum

Between May long weekend and July 1st, $5.00 per magnum sold on site will be donated to the BCHF.

To give back we are donating $12 per case to the BCHF. Look for it after the long weekend!
 
Many Hands - Make light work. When we work together and with a common goal in mind we can accomplish greatness.

INFORMATION AND WELLBEING LINKS

We have a COVID19 information and wellbeing links page on our website that may be of interest.
The BCHF is a charity that supports hospitality workers facing financial crisis due to a health condition. These are the people who work in your favourite restaurants, wineries, breweries, bars, and hotels. Often with limited access to benefits or financial aid, our beneficiaries have nowhere else to turn if a health condition arises. Your support has a meaningful impact by getting them back on their feet again.
