The Soirée

The Luminary Award Soirée is a glamorous evening to celebrate the power of mentorship. It’s a tough world for girls. With your support, we can continue empowering girls in our community to overcome obstacles, gain the confidence to reach their full potential, and become the leaders of tomorrow. 

Every year we are amazed at the generosity and dedication our guests have to the power of mentorship. You are essential to the continuation of our programs, to making sure every girl on our waitlist is matched with a supportive Big Sister, and to ensuring all our matches are long-lasting, impactful, and positive mentorships.

Each year at our Luminary Award Soirée, Big Sisters honours an exceptional person who has moved the needle in regards to children, mentorship, and philanthropy. This year, we celebrate an inspirational woman who has made a remarkable impact for women, children, and her community. Andrea Thomas Hill cares deeply about making the world a better place—and we are beyond inspired by this dedication! Learn more about her at the event during a live, on-stage interview hosted by special guest, Trevor Linden.

On November 2nd, here’s what you can look forward to as you change the course of young girls’ lives.


The Luminary

In 1992, Andrea founded Run for the Cure in Canada, which has grown into a massive movement towards a cure and raised millions of dollars in breast cancer research funds. In 2007, she recognized a need in Vancouver to support single mothers living in poverty. As a result, she founded the Cause We Care Foundation, which to date has distributed over 4100 food hampers at Christmas, over 1100 backpacks in September, and over 2500 care packages at Mother’s Day to families in need. The organization also funds after school programs at four inner city schools in Metro Vancouver and job training for women trying to strive towards economic independence.

It is our distinct pleasure to honour Andrea Thomas Hill at this year’s Luminary Award Soirée on November 2nd. Please join us.
