Jillian Harris (The Bachelorette, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition) will be hosting a fundraising event on June 17th benefiting Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver.
Despite her move to Chicago and her new role as a designer on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Jillian will be attending this event in Surrey, BC and showing her support for Big Brothers, a program with which she has been involved in the past. She was a Big Buddy to two students from Bayview Elementary School in Vancouver from 2005 – 2008.
The event will feature cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, and The Beat 94.5‘s Nira Arora. Jillian will also be doing a Q&A session with guests.
Big Brothers hopes the event will increase awareness about their volunteer opportunities for women, as well as recruit women to volunteer as In-School mentors in Surrey where some children wait two years for Big Buddies.
Cocktails for a Cause takes place June 17th at Earls Strawberry Hill (7236 120th/Scott Road) from 7:00pm until 10:00pm. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased in advance online.
