We are delighted to present our virtual Luminary Award Soirée  on September 30th, 2020 from 6:30-7:30pm.  With the future of COVID-19 unknown we have made the decision to host our annual event virtually this year. 

Just as we have been impacted by the global pandemic, the Little Sisters we support are experiencing the most challenges in our community. They face increased stresses linked to isolation, decreased access to education and the long-term emotional, mental and economic effects of this changing time, they need the support of Big Sisters more than ever.

We invite you to join us virtually to gather as a community that supports the potential of girls and youth. 

To celebrate Big Sisters’ 60th anniversary and our 6th Luminary Award Soirée, we are incredibly excited to recognize six extraordinary women who epitomize the values of Big Sisters – Her Honour Janet Austin, Joanne Brown, Kay Gray, Linda Parsons, Patricia Shields and Susan Mendelson as our Luminary Award recipients.
