MONTRÉAL, May 28, 2020 /CNW/ - Moët Hennessy in Canada has launched a national program entitled Coming Together to support its local partners during the pandemic. Due to COVID-19, the hospitality sector has been heavily impacted, and the livelihood of bartenders, restauranteurs and service staff has been uprooted as they navigate this new reality.  As part of the food and beverage community, Moët Hennessy in Canada is supporting its partners through their Coming Together initiative with The Maison Hennessy donating $50,000 CAD to the Bartenders Benevolent Fund, in recognition of the hardships the hospitality community is currently facing.

"The Maison Hennessy is proud to support the Bartenders Benevolent Fund as it directly benefits the community we are a part of," says Veronique Gonneville, national communications director of Moët Hennessy in Canada. "The non-profit organization was created by industry members to benefit bartenders, servers and front of house support staff in the hospitality industry across Canada."

The national Coming Together program is a multi-faceted campaign aimed at supporting the hospitality community through local and national initiatives that will continue throughout 2020.

"Coming Together with Moët Hennessy in Canada is our way to thank our friends in the food and beverage industry that have supported us in immeasurable ways," says Alexis de Calonne, managing director of Moët Hennessy in Canada. "We know that many of our partners are facing unprecedented challenges at this time, and we are committed to being there for them, both with unique initiatives and financial donations."

Campaign elements include:

The most recent collaboration with byPeterandPauls.com features luxurious at-home dining experiences that include a virtual product tasting component with a Moët Hennessy brand ambassador. Partial proceeds will support select Canadian charities and their efforts during COVID-19.
