The British Columbia Hospitality Foundation (BCHF) is continuing its mission to provide financial support to members of the hospitality community who are having difficulty making ends meet due to extraordinary health crises.
Its most recent beneficiary is Teresa Evans, who worked as a publisher and editor in the BC hospitality industry for 35 years.
Teresa retired from her position as editor of the BC Restaurant News in 2001. Since that time, she has faced numerous physical challenges and a significant financial burden as a result of her medical expenses. The BCHF presented Teresa with a $5,000 grant to help with her accumulated expenses from the past two years.

Formed in 2006, the BCHF is a charitable organization dedicated to providing financial support to individuals within the hospitality community who are coping with extraordinary costs arising from a serious health crisis.
Since its inception, the Foundation has expanded to also award scholarships and bursaries to students enrolled in approved hospitality programmes. BCHF raises funds through donations, third party functions, and by hosting events such as an annual golf tournament, Dish 'N Dazzle and Tip Out to Help.
