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.
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!
