Girls Night In Event
Thanks to the generosity of the Trinity Western House, we were able to host seven of our Big Sister matches at our 2nd Girls Night In event this year. Girls (and girls at heart) enjoyed a movie, beautifying face masks, manicures, and professional hair styling thanks to one of our talented Big Sisters.
Christmas Live Charity Auction
Our annual charity auction at the Murrayville Town Pub took place on November 30th and we're happy to say it was a tremendous success! Thanks to the prize donors and the happy bidders at the auction, over $47,000 was raised to go to our agency's mentoring programs. This is always a really fun event in such a great atmosphere, so we hope that if you didn't make it out to the auction this year that we'll see you there in 2018. Thank you again to all of the prize donors for making this event possible and to all of the people who came out to support our agency. Also, a HUGE thank you to John Pybus, Mike Thompson, Rod Hampton and all of the Murrayville Town Pub staff for hosting and helping to make this event possible and run so smoothly in such a fun atmosphere!
Preston Chevrolet GM Donates Giants Suite Tickets
Preston Chevrolet GM provided us with a generous donation of Giants tickets in their private suite. 28 tickets in total were provided for nine of our matches and waitlist families to take in a great game of hockey.
Annual Kids' Christmas Party
Sonrise Church once again hosted our Christmas party for the Bigs, Littles, and families involved in our Community program. Dinner was served to over 100 attendees, and the remainder of the evening was spent enjoying crafts, games, and a visit from Santa! Thank you so much to all of the staff at Sonrise and volunteers who made this event a success!

Magic Of Christmas Parade

If you came to Langley's Magic of Christmas Parade, you might have seen some of our staff, Bigs, and Littles marching and handing out candy canes to parade spectators. We want to thank all of the people who marched with us and helped our agency have a presence in the parade.
Zealous Art Paint Nights
Zealous Art has been providing our matches with the opportunity to participate in a paint night once a month since July. This is an absolutely free activity, so we can't express enough how much this means to our agency to be able to offer a fun outing at no cost to our Bigs and Littles. Thank you so much to Freda and the Zealous Art crew for thinking of our agency and offering these events to people involved in our mentoring programs.

Sponsors Found For All Christmas Hampers

We were so happy to let all 24 of the families who applied for a Christmas hamper know that we were able to find a sponsor for their hamper. Because of the generosity of local individual and business donors, 24 families will have a memorable Christmas morning together! Keep your eyes on our social media for a fun shot of all of the hampers when they arrive in our office.
