Event: Big Sisters Spring Luncheon 2011
Venue: Sutton Place Hotel

Many of us weren’t fortunate enough to have a big sister growing up. (And a few of us, it must be said, were just as unfortunate to have one.) An older, wiser person can help us make sense of the perplexities of life as we grow up. The Big Sisters Foundation fills that gap. Today its BC organization comprises over 400 volunteers, hundreds of girls served each year, 17 staff members, a Board of Directors and Honorary Advisory Board and many community supporters.

Each year the charity holds a Spring Lunch at the Sutton Place Hotel to honour their devoted members. This year the lunch raised a record-breaking $53,000. Mayor Dianne Watts inspired attendees with a keynote speech about how important mentoring is, both for people, personally, and communities.

Moneys raised at the event went to helping match at least 26 new girls with a new, caring mentor.
