GrapeJuice raises $67,000 for Big Sisters

We are happy to announce that last night’s Grape Juice event at Society in Yaletown raised $67,000 for Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland.

Since 2007, GrapeJuice has raised $161,900 for Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland.

A highlight of the evening was when Fred Lee conducted our Sponsor-A-Match live auction, which alone, raised $24,50 in a matter of minutes. The Grape Juice guests were entertained by Fred’s enthusiasm. and McNeill Nakamoto created Grape Juice to raise much needed funds to facilitate the matching process for over 190 at risk young girls on the Big Sisters waitlist.

Big Sisters of BC lower Mainland matches volunteer mentors with young girls who face a multitude of challenges. Many of the young children suffer from low-self esteem and social isolation due to poverty, abuse or neglect. For every Little Sister that is successfully matched with a volunteer mentor, a quiet revolution of hope takes place. It costs $2,000 to make and maintain one Big & Little Sister match for one year.

A big thank you to all of our generous GrapeJuice sponsors , donors, guests and volunteers!
