From the BC Stay-at-Home Campout, to folks selling toques, scrunchies, and T-shirts, to artwork sold by professionals (and even by a 5-year-old boy), and many other clever ideas in between, we continue to be inspired by the unique ways British Columbians have raised money to support our Emergency Response Fund.

Most recently, we had the pleasure of being introduced to Chef Ann Kirsebom, who, among other notable accomplishments, is the Executive Chef of a full-service boutique catering company in Vancouver. She’s created award-winning sauces that have been shipped around the world, and her latest and greatest creation is the Dr Henry Whisky Sauce, “in honour of Dr Bonnie Henry leading us calmly through COVID-19.”

Chef Ann informed us that she has committed to donating ALL net proceeds of the Dr Henry Whisky Sauce to both the BCCDC Foundation and the UBC/VGH Hospital Foundation!

We are grateful to Chef Ann for choosing to support our Emergency Response Fund. She was excited to share with us that she will continue to donate profits from the whisky sauce “until every British Columbian is vaccinated.”

Recently, she invited us to the Gourmet Warehouse (one of the locations where the sauce is being sold) to accept a first instalment of $5,684.00!

You, too, can get your hands on this delicious and popular sauce that’s been “flying off the shelves,” according to Chef Ann. In fact, the marketing manager at the Gourmet Warehouse told us, “We can’t restock the shelves fast enough.”

Luckily, you can purchase Dr Henry’s Whisky Sauce both online, and at over 25 stores in BC. This tasty sauce is the perfect gift for any BBQ aficionado in your life!

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank Chef Ann for this delicious creation in honour of Dr Henry, and we invite you to get some of your own to enjoy as well, knowing that your purchase also directly supports our Emergency Response Fund—a win-win!
