Whisky Wisemen donates $12,000 to Backpack Buddies!
The Whisky Wisemen Society celebrated this past Third Thursday in a BIG way! We were honoured to present a cheque of $12,000 to Backpack Buddies, who were our 2017 Vancouver beneficiary.
Backpack Buddies exists to fill the weekend hunger gap for children in Metro Vancouver.
"Everyday, tens of thousands of children are going hungry in our communities. While school breakfast, lunch and snack programs are actively addressing this crisis, the weekend remains a difficult time for many families. We know that when a child is given a Backpack Buddy on Friday afternoon that’s full of meals and snacks for the weekend, they return to school on Monday morning ready to learn."
We were able to raise our funds thanks to YOUR support throughout the year through various initiatives including Be Wise, our Annual Charity Golf Tournament, and our smaller events which take place throughout the year!
This year, we are pleased to welcome Working Gear as the 2018 Vancouver Beneficiary of the Whisky Wisemen Society. Head over to our Charity Partners page to learn more.
