Big Sisters’ Luminary Soirée is a time for our community to gather and celebrate the power of mentorship.
Friday October 15th, 2021

We look forward to sharing details about this year’s exciting event shortly. Scroll below to review last year’s event!

Thank you to all who joined us at our 6th Annual Luminary Award Soirée!

You helped us raise over $1,000,000 in support of vulnerable youth in our community!

One of the simple things we say every day, “thank you”, fails to express the depth of gratitude we feel in our hearts. 

Every dollar raised truly makes a huge difference in communities across the Lower Mainland where Big Sisters’ small but mighty team of caseworkers support over 700 volunteers along with over 850 vulnerable youth and their families. 
You can see your impact everyday.  It’s the young girl who walks into a classroom with confidence, a nurse’s aide whose career was inspired by her Big Sister or an at-risk youth who chooses a different path than her peers.
In these uncertain times you have given the vulnerable girls we support something they can count on.

We were so glad you could join us virtually to celebrate Big Sisters’ 60th anniversary and to honour six extraordinary women. 
  • The Honourable Janet Austin
  • Joanne Brown
  • Kay Gray
  • Linda Parsons
  • Patricia Shields
  • Susan Mendelson
These women exemplify to the fullest what it means to be a Big Sister. It was a privilege to celebrate them in your presence.
Thank you for your commitment to Big Sisters.
