Thank You for Believing in the Power of Mentoring

Thank you for joining us at Spring Lunch last week. We are beyond grateful for the support and generosity from all our guests, sponsors, volunteers, speakers, Big Heart award recipients, and of course our keynote, Paulina Cameron.

This year we raised over $92,600, which is more than ever before at this event. We truly can’t thank you enough for helping us continue the important work of matching at-risk girls with a positive Big Sister who empowers them to reach their full potential.

A Radiant Afternoon

The 2018 Big Sisters Spring Lunch, presented by Scotiabank at the Sutton Place Hotel, celebrated the importance of mentorship in our lives and in the lives of Big and Little Sisters.

Research shows that mentoring has a powerful impact on the lives of young girls. We know that 96 percent of adults who had a mentor as a child say they are happy and 92 percent feel confident.

Here are a few our favourite memories of Spring Lunch 2018:

Celebrated inspirational women with over 250 like-minded businesses, philanthropists, and guests including Scotiabank, Raymond James, Windsor Plywood Foundation, Harbour West Consulting, The Honourable Janet Austin, Paulina Cameron, “Canada 150 Women” honourees, and more.

Indulged in some afternoon bubbly at the Champagne Reception, sponsored by Harbour West Consulting and enjoyed a delicious three-course lunch in the stunning Sutton Place Hotel.

Global BC’s Kristi Gordon captured our attention as emcee and keynote, Paulina Cameron, revealed how mentoring is important at any stage of life or career.

Awarded two exceptional Big Sisters supporters, Windsor Plywood Foundation and Martina Lee, with Big Heart Awards.

Shared the impact our Study Buddy program has on lifting girls to their full potential, and we couldn’t have done it without the tremendous support of Founding Partner, Raymond James, and the visionaries on the Education Advisory Committee

All in all, we raised over $91,000 towards transforming girls lives in the Big Sisters mentoring programs, which is more than ever before at this event. So, thank you, thank you, thank you for believing in the power of mentoring.

Thank You to our Amazing Sponsors
