Ferrari Maserati of Vancouver presents:
The 6th annual Grape Juice Wine Auction was held at Ferrari Maserati of Vancouver on March 7th, 2013.
McNeill Nakamoto Recruitment Group and MAC Marketing Solutions created Grape Juice to raise much needed funds to facilitate the matching process for at risk young girls on the Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland waitlist.
The 2013 GrapeJuice event raised over $105,000 for Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland.
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.
As a primarily privately funded not-for-profit organization, it really does take a village, rather a community, to mentor a child. The paths these young girls start on are critical to the future successes in their adult lives and to the lives of their future children.
