Brewery offering bursaries leading up to 2015 Canada Winter Games

Pacific Western Brewing (PWB), official sponsor of the 2015 Canada Winter Games, is celebrating sports and community leadership with the expansion of its Hometown Heroes program.

In the months leading up to the 2015 Canada Winter Games in Prince George and with the help of major sports organizations the brewery will honour Hometown Heroes from all regions of the province.

Kazuko Komatsu, owner and CEO of PWB, says: We are honoured to support the goals of the 2015 Canada Winter Games by identifying and supporting athletes and community leaders and mentors who have shown the potential to become Canadas future ambassadors.

At least 16 heroes will be selected from all regions of B.C. in four rounds leading up to the Games in February 2015. Our heroes will be receiving bursaries representing a portion of PWB proceeds from the sale of our fine products. We started this program in 2002 and we have supported many young athletes and other community heroes whose extraordinary endeavours inspire us all.

Application to the Hometown Heroes program is open to any B.C. resident currently engaged in sports as an athlete or coach, or otherwise excelling in a community mentoring activity. Applicants must be at least 19 years old. Candidates will demonstrate outstanding sportsmanship; proven interest, ability and passion in the pursuit of their sport; a dedication to their learning with a strong track record of academic success; and, a well- rounded lifestyle including community involvement.

Application forms will be available online at www.pwbrewing.com. Two letters of recommendation by a non-relative should accompany the application. E-mail the application to: mail@pwbrewing.com or mail to: Hometown Heroes Bursaries, PWB Foundation, 3876 Norland Ave., Burnaby, B.C., V5G 4T9.
