Got Heart?

Yesterday McNeill Nakamoto Recruitment Group had the great honour of receiving the Big Heart Award from Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland at the Big Sisters Spring Lunch.  We truly believe that mentorship for young women strengthens our community.   Sarah McNeill comments, ‘Every young girl deserves to be inspired to their own future greatness. Big Sisters truly offers this opportunity to these young girls.  As both mothers and business owners, Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland is the most natural choice for our company’.

McNeill Nakamoto is proud of its involvement with Big Sisters and thrilled to have raised over $50,000 for Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland.  We find ways to involve our staff, our clients, the community and especially the Little Sisters themselves.   We do this by raising funds and awareness:

  • through  silver  sponsorship of the Big Sisters Divas Gala
  • ‘McNak Jeans for Big Sisters’ – individual donations by McNeill Nakamoto staff members in exchange for wearing jeans to work
  • Grape Juice, the fun and very successful Wine Auction created and  hosted by Team McNak
  • ‘McNak Career Launcher’ for Little Sisters – a workshop on assisting teenage ‘Littles’ with resume and interview tips
  • Sarah McNeill chairs the Big Sisters Gala, and with her influence and network has created a broad awareness in the community, as well as broken fund raising records for this annual event.

The Big Sisters Big Heart Award is given annually to a business for outstanding support of Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland.

  1. Sarah & Cheryl:

    The time, energy, and heart that you have put into supporting the Big Sisters charity is certainly worth note. I’m so pleased to hear that you’ve been recognized for your dedication to their cause.

    Listening to the stories of the little sisters at the gala dinner last year brought tears to my eyes.

    At ViRTUS we’re proud to continue supporting the silent auction each year. Being a huge fan of red wine helps…


  2. Congrats on the Big Heart Award, McNak! It’s because of your strong commitment to your communities and in essense, the positive energy that attracted me. Thanks for sharing. I look forward to seeing more recognition =)
