Buy Ben a Beer
Nov 09, 2016

The BC Hospitality Foundation (BCHF) has launched Buy Ben A Beer, an online fundraising campaign. The goal is to raise $50,000, which will help at least ten (Ben)eficiaries across the province. To donate and more: buybenabeer.com.

Buy Ben A Beer is an online fundraiser where a “beer” can be purchased with a $5.00 minimum donation. We suggest that our members post their own photo and encourage colleagues, friends and family to buy the next round, using the hashtag #BuyBenABeer.

Funds raised will be used to cover the cost of medical equipment, prescriptions, transportation to therapy appointments, or to cover shortfalls towards housing, food or other expenses until our “Bens” are able to return to the work force.

This is our chance to Buy Ben A Beer and to change the life of those in our industry. Visit buybenabeer.com today and share #BuyBenABeer.
