STEWART FAMILY ESTATES RAISE OVER $5,000 FOR BC HOSPITALITY FOUNDATION
Stewart Family Estates (SFE) Proprietor & CEO Tony Stewart is pleased to announce that a joint sales promotion for Quails’ Gate Winery and Lake Sonoma Winery has resulted in a donation of more than $5,000 to the BC Hospitality Foundation (BCHF).
During the sales promotion that ran through November and December 2017, $1.50 from every case of Quails’ Gate and Lake Sonoma wine sold in British Columbia went directly to the BCHF. The funds help support the Foundation’s charitable initiatives, which include a scholarship program and providing financial assistance to hospitality professionals facing financial hardship due to critical medical needs.
“As our family has been in the hospitality business for more than 25 years, we have seen the direct impact that the BC Hospitality Foundation has in our community,” remarks Stewart. “We sincerely appreciate all the work that the BCHF does and this donation is just a token of our appreciation.”
