John Aisenstat Memorial Scholarship Event


Watercolor portrait of Mr. John Aisenstat


Known for his passion for the business he grew up in, John Aisenstat truly loved the employee “family” who have made Hy’s Steakhouse & Cocktail Bar a success for nearly 70 years. In his honor, the John Aisenstat Memorial Scholarship, in partnership with Vancouver Community College, supports students pursuing careers in the culinary and hospitality arts.

Join us on Thursday February 22 from 5 - 7 p.m. to sip premium spirits, savour delicious bites, and share great memories.

All proceeds from the event go directly to the endowment that funds the John Aisenstat Memorial Scholarship at Vancouver Community College. We hope you can join us.

Tickets are $100 and include a $50 tax receipt.

If you are unable to join us in person, please consider donating online.
