Did Ya Know?

Have Ya Ever Heard of the Beaches' Charity Table?

Back in 1995, the opening Beaches Vancouver Team decided to create a table where people could feel good about giving back to those in need. The original idea was to use the table closest to the kitchen since it would be hard to seat. It didn’t take long to decide that if they were going to donate… Give them the best table in the house! Guests are allowed to reserve the Charity Table with a minimum $5 donation at lunch and $10 at dinner. 

One day a Guest really appreciated what we were doing in the community & generously donated $1,000! To this day, the Charity Table is named after that guest….The Todd Madsen Charity Table. The first charitable recipient of the table was the YWCA here in Vancouver. The table seats 6 people and can be reserved in advance. It's the best way to guarantee that window table!

The Charity Table became so popular that Leslie Durst told us we needed another one.  Leslie likes to bring friends in, and has always done great things for our community.  So in 2011, the Leslie Durst ‘Back up’ Charity Table began. 

It is also a very nice table that seats 5 comfortably right on the window. This table can also be reserved in advance.

Thanks Beach Team for coming up with a great way to give back to our community!
