On the last Saturday in June every year, the Peninsula U-Brew Winery in Sidney hosts a Customer Appreciation Day. Food, drink and music are provided by owners Stan Roberts and Maureen Bifford. How can their many customers fail to enjoy themselves?
For the last four years PUBW has incorporated a fund raiser for CHES that pays for the scholarship for their CHES girl, Jeniva. Any additional amount goes towards education and life skills workshops for the CHES girls. CHES Directors Chris and Catriona Harker have attended each year and do their best to promote ticket sales and sundry donations.
This year, the total raised was $2,089, more than double last year’s amount. In addition, at least one patron signed up to become a sponsor! A most successful day.
CHES appreciates the initiatives of small businesses such as Peninsula u-Brew Winery that go out of their way to support us.
