The holiday cheer doesn’t end with the year and neither does the giving. Liberty Wine Merchant is once again recruiting British Columbia’s finest in the food and beverage industry for Taste BC: a fundraiser for the Children’s Hospital-Oak Tree Clinic which specializes in providing care and services to those with HIV/AIDS. The funds raised from the annual winter event already total $164,957, and with Taste BC 2010, that figure is certain to increase.
The 16th annual celebration of local food and drink takes place January 19, 2010 (4:30-7:30 p.m.) at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Vancouver. Guests will taste, sip and experience BC’s finest wine, beer and spirits accompanied by tasty fare from our best local restaurants. Along with excellent food and drink, attractions include live music, door prizes, and a silent auction that features luxury items, including local experience packages and delicious products made by British Columbia’s own.
Taste BC is one event you will not want to miss. This memorable tasting promises to inspire a sense of local pride, and most importantly, raise proceeds to benefit one of the province’s most vital medical institutions. Tickets for Taste BC can be purchased at all Liberty locations for $49.99 each. Remember, all proceeds goes to the BC Children’s Hospital â€“ Oak Tree Clinic. What a great way to have a night out and help those in need. I hope to see you there! Here’s a video from last year’s event.
