Taste BC 2012

Comments 101 by Rebecca Bollwitt

This time of year is supposedly the most depressing but with the Cupcake Throwdown, Hot Chocolate Festival, Dine Out Vancouver and the Bite of White Rock, all the goodness going into our bellies is sure to cheer us up. An even better way to get rid of the winer blues is to attend a fabulous event like Liberty Wine Merchants’ Taste BC that supports the BC Children’s Hospital Oak Tree Clinic.

When Tuesday, January 24, 2012 from 4:30 to 7:30 pm
Where Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver, Park Ballroom

Sip and sample some of the province’s best wine and beer, along with canapés prepared by the city’s best restaurants. The event includes live music, door prizes, a silent auction and more.

Help Taste BC make a difference in the lives of BC Children. To date, they have raised $186,336 for the cause: The Oak Tree Clinic provides specialized HIV care for infected women, pregnant women, partners, children and youth, and support services for affected families.
