When Thursday May 6, 2010 at 6:00pm
Where V at Earls in Yaletown and McNeill Nakamoto created GrapeJuice to raise much needed funds to facilitate the matching process for over 100 at risk young girls on the Big Sisters waitlist.

Big Sisters of BC lower Mainland matches volunteer mentors with young girls who face a multitude of challenges. Many of the young children suffer from low-self esteem and social isolation due to poverty, abuse or neglect. For every Little Sister that is successfully matched with a volunteer mentor, a quiet revolution of hope takes place. It costs $2,000 to make and maintain one Big & Little Sister match for one year.

The auction will feature exclusive wines from around the world while guests enjoy hors d’oeuvres with plenty of mingling and socializing.

If you would like to attend this event, I have two tickets to give away. Please leave a comment on this post to enter or post the following on Twitter:
