Tourism Richmond staff and representatives from Helijet, Nooch Snack and Chill and The Boathouse  were on hand at the Richmond Food Bank Society to present numerous boxes of non-perishable goods as well as a $1,000 donation.

The food and cash donations were raised at Tourism Richmond’s Nov. 30 Christmas party, held at the Helijet hangar and generously supported by local businesses Nooch, Harold’s Bar and Grill, Carver’s Steakhouse, Sinfully the Best chocolates, Lulu Island Winery, The Boathouse and Parker Place. The event raised $317.25 in cash donations and Tourism Richmond contributed the additional $682.75 on behalf of its member partners.
