A Vernon coffee shop is brewing up support for local charities.
Every Tuesday, Triumph Coffee hosts Triumph Tuesday every week donates 15 per cent of the sales to local organizations.
“We believe it is our shared responsibility to constantly be making Vernon a great place to live, work and play,” said Robin Hewitt, owner of Triumph Coffee.
“By supporting these local groups, we are together in achieving a great victory.”
The inaugural event March 7 supported the Sovereign Lake Nordic Club’s race team.
“We found out about #TriumphTuesday in early February, and the invitation was a delightful surprise,” said Penny Latta, parent volunteer for the race team.
“The funds raised went towards supporting our athletes at ski nationals in Canmore.”
Since then, other benefiting groups have included the North Okanagan Cycling Society, the Allan Brooks Nature Centre, the B.C. SPCA and the Society for the Protection of Kalamalka Lake.
“Triumph is much more than a place to visit for outstanding coffee and food,” said Dudley Coulter of Triumph Coffee.
“It is a community hub – people come here for work, to visit, to play and relax. We even have rotating artist exhibits, a little free library and guests are encouraged to bring their bikes inside while they eat.”
