New charitable partner for Township 7 Winery

Langley winery's fundraising proceeds will go to Ronald McDonald House

A new partnership will see charitable events from a Langley winery benefit Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon (RMH BC).

RMH BC will be the sole beneficiary of Township 7 Vineyards & Winery’s numerous fundraising events.

For over 30 years, Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon have been providing accommodation for seriously ill children and their families when they must travel to Vancouver for their child’s major treatment.

They opened a new 73-bedroom house on the grounds of B.C. Children’s Hospital nearly two years ago which serves 2,500 families each year in spacious suites with private washrooms.

“Throughout history wine has brought families together and been used to celebrate new beginnings,” said Trevor Allen, the assistant general manager of Township 7.

“We are proud to support a fantastic charitable organization like (this), which has a notable history of keeping families connected and providing a magical home away from home for sick children.

“We depend on community support to serve our families and we are pleased to partner with such a community-minded organization as Township 7,” said Richard Pass, chief executive officer for Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon.

Some of the winery’s fundraising events include their annual Easter Egg Hunt, the Father’s Day Wine & Swine, and the Grape Stomp. The easter egg hunt is set for March 27.
