A “RIESLING” TO CELEBRATE

Like you, the last weeks for us have been marked by uncertainty, concern and adjustment as we do all we can to safeguard the health of our community given the rapidly changing global situation. 

To that end, we have made the difficult decision to defer the GrapeJuice gathering on April 22nd, and will be looking at a new date to hold the event in the future. 

To date, this extraordinary event has raised over $900,000 in support of vulnerable girls in our community who depend on the stable relationship they have with a caring mentor.  In a world practising social isolation, those precious moments of connection become even more important.

Our mentors teach kids to navigate life’s challenges and we will practice the same resiliency we encourage in our girls. 

In the meantime, please take care of yourselves and each other.

 

What if every girl fulfills her potential?

Helping girls reach their full potential through mentoring is an essential prevention strategy. It costs $2,000 to support a Big and Little Sister mentoring match. Big and Little Sister matches are supported by our professional caseworkers who are experts in the field of social work. Even though Big Sisters BCLM is a volunteer based organization, it is the caseworkers that provide the critical support to allow a match to thrive. The math is simple, the more funding Big Sisters has the more caseworkers they can hire which leads to more vulnerable girls being supported by a female mentor. Investing in Big Sisters mentoring programs is proven to provide $23 social return on investment for every dollar invested. Mentored youth are happier and more successful in life.

THANK YOU FOR INVESTING IN THE POWER OF MENTORSHIP.

GRAPEJUICE IS MADE POSSIBLE BY THE GENEROSITY OF OUR SPONSORS
