Last October, the Grand Lake Fire Department selflessly took the call of duty to combat the East Troublesome Fire, in what became the second largest fire in Colorado history. Firefighters battled for 7 weeks to control the blaze as it spread from the Arapaho National Forest to Rocky Mountain National Park.
When our client, Brickhouse 40 in Granby, CO told us this story and how close their relationship is with these brave first responders, we instantly knew they’d be recipients of our Dine Out Give Back program. Shortly after, we purchased hundreds of dollars in gift cards and our VP of Sales, Donna Graham, drove to Grand Lake, CO to meet these heroes. We were honored to thank such brave first responders by giving them a free meal in their hometown.
Along with Donna and Brickhouse 40’s manager, Sanyia Watson, was Brickhouse 40 bartender Brittany and her daughter Daisy J. They all travelled to the Grand Lakes Fire Department to thank the brave firefighters for their service, while Daisy J (nicknamed the Brickhouse Baby) handed out the gift cards. At BarVision, we’re incredibly thankful we can not only support the Grand Lakes Fire Department, but also Brickhouse 40 and their wonderful staff. It was a pleasure to help give meals and drinks to heroes while helping hardworking restaurant staff earn a few extra tips in the process.

The Food & Beverage industry is full of small businesses, and they’ve been massively impacted during the Stay-At-Home orders of 2020. Many of our clients, friends, and family are owners or staff at these small businesses and we wanted to thank them for their tireless work to keep their kitchens and bars open. This past holiday, we purchased thousands of dollars in gift cards from small restaurants for distribution to essential workers. Not only are we proud to support our clients and communities, but we’re honored to thank our generous essential workers for their sacrifices throughout 2020.
