During the event we will also announce the winner of the Rebecca Lechman Memorial Bursary, which is awarded on an annual basis.
Rebecca passed away suddenly and tragically in March of 2020. She was a dear friend to many and a very active member of our Winnipeg wine community. Rebecca was a Certified Sommelier and loved learning about wine almost as much she loved sharing her knowledge and passion with others. She was a wonderful mentor to many young people in our community. She gave her time and knowledge freely, and took great pleasure in seeing the people she cared about succeed.
In memory of Rebecca and her contribution to our community, CAPS Manitoba has created the Rebecca Lechman Memorial Bursary. The bursary will be $1000, and will be awarded to a deserving recipient who is looking to further their wine or hospitality education/training. The recipient will be chosen by a committee composed of Rebecca's family, friends and colleagues.
So come sip, mingle, snack (food stations will be provided by our gracious host, Promenade Brasserie, and help us toast to Rebecca with a glass of Chardonnay.
We look forward to see you there!
