Buy Ben A Beer: A Worthy Cause to Help those That Helped You

Help the Bens in our lives get back on their feet. #BuyBenABeer.

November 25, 2016

We all have a Ben (or Beneficiaries) in our lives. Whether it’s helping to take our bags up to our hotel rooms, or a barista making our favorite coffee. When they have to take time off from work as a result due to injury or illness, the cost to get onto the road to recovery can be a hard one.

The B.C. Hospitality Foundation has created the Buy Ben a Beer fundraiser. Donors can purchase virtual beers starting at five dollars to help those in the hospitality industry in their time of need. Of the 133 beneficiaries supported across the province to date, 58 of them have been from Vancouver.

The goal of this fundraiser is to raise at least $50,000 (to help ten people with $5000 in beneficiary support). The money can be used by the beneficiary to cover daily expenses and medical costs. The BCHF hopes to raise enough support and awareness so that the program can expand in the years to come.
