This month Miss604 is proud to sponsor BC Youth Week (May 1-7), the Surrey Youth Showcase Basketball Tournament (May 5) and the Surrey International Children’s Festival (May 24-26). I am also proud to be an Official Jeans Day Ambassador! Jeans Day for the BC Children’s Hospital is on May 3rd. And, if you’re looking to do something extra special for Mother’s Day, consider dining out at one of these participating restaurants and they’ll donate proceeds to the BC Women’s Hospital. All of these events and hundreds more are listed below. Have a great May!
