May 23, 2019 (Vancouver, BC)
– The BC Hospitality Foundation (BCHF) is pleased to announce that Geoff Barlow, Debbie Morris, and Sandra Oldfield joined its Board of Directors at the organization’s AGM on May 22, 2019. At the same event, founder Richard Carras announced he is stepping down from an active role at the charity.
Originally formed in 2006, the BCHF provides assistance for local hospitality workers facing financial crisis due to extraordinary medical circumstances. Over the years it has also instituted a scholarship program to foster the development of the next generation of hospitality industry leaders. In 2018 the organization reached the milestone of over $1 million given away. Its growing profile means it is receiving more requests for assistance, and the BCHF looks forward to the contributions of its new Directors as it continues to grow.
