The public is invited to support North Island College students at the Blackfin Pub’s Toast to Wine and Beer.

Edd and Lisa Moyes  have raised $4,500 to date to create opportunities for students interested in a career in hospitality or culinary arts.

On Thursday, March 17, the owners of Comox’s  Blackfin Pub are doing it again.

The restaurateurs will host the third annual Toast to Wine and Beer, a night of inspiring fun, food and fundraising that supports NIC culinary and tourism and hospitality management students.

The night features local and import wines, local breweries, charcuterie, cheese, breads, chocolate-covered strawberries and a huge gift basket to be raffled off.

Edd and Lisa Moyes are ardent supporters of NIC’s Professional Cook (Culinary Arts) and Tourism and Hospitality Management programs as well as the industries.

The Moyes Family Culinary Arts Bursary and the Moyes Family Tourism and Hospitality Bursary are available to Comox Valley students passionate about culinary arts, hospitality service or restaurant management entering NIC’s culinary or tourism programs.

Bursary applications are available now by visiting www.nic.bc.ca/awards and filling out the online application before April 30, 2016.

A Toast to Wine and Beer takes place in the pub’s lower level, starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are $40 and available now at the Blackfin Pub.
