The BCHF’s #HospitalityHustle was a great success!  We’ve had excellent feedback from participants, who noted that the Hustle helped motivate them to get moving and to focus on necessary self-care during a very uncertain time.

Although the loosening of COVID restrictions means that businesses are re-opening around BC in measured phases, there’s still a lot to navigate, personally and professionally, during this unprecedented time.  That’s why we’ve chosen to continue the Hustle as an ongoing program.  

We invite you, therefore, to continue “Hustling for Hospitality” by engaging in physical exercise and sharing your experiences on Social Media and tagging  #HospitalityHustle. IT IS FREE! 
Please watch our social media posts, updates on our website, and the BCHF’s newsletters for seasonal activities, industry profiles, fitness tips, #WineWednesdays, #SolidaritySunday and more.

Stay well, have fun and engage with your fellow hospitality workers.
Organized by BC Event Management , this hybrid event, included both an interactive live-streamed element and an in-person event. Check out the YouTube channel for highlights of the event.
We would like to thank BC Management for choosing the BCHF to be part of the event. Our first ever online silent auction raised over $10,000!

This could only be achieved thanks to the amazing prizes donated by hospitality businesses as well as over 70 bidders!
We’re very grateful for the help we’re receiving from our friends in the hospitality industry, the support has been incredible. It won’t make up for the revenue we’ve lost as a result of having to cancel scheduled fundraising events but it has shown us how the hospitality industry is the family you can rely on!

We truly acknowledge your help by choosing to make purchases that support our indusrty! 

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

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.
