Jillian Harris earned the title Bachelorette when ABC viewers fell in love with her bubbly personality on the hit show The Bachelor. The Vancouverite volunteered with Big Brothers from 2005 to 2008 as an in-school mentor at Bayview Elementary School.
Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver is a registered charity and community-based organization that has been operating in the Lower Mainland since 1957. Traditionally, they have offered friendship based mentoring programs and matched boys & girls who have limited to no contact with their families with carefully screened and trained adult volunteers. Times have changed, and in response, they have developed a menu of programs to suit the diversity of the communities we serve. Although the Big Brothers movement was born out of a need to combat a growing delinquency rate, their mentoring programs now serve a much greater purpose. The notion of prevention-based mentoring programs remains the same, but the driving force behind the concept has evolved. Big Brothers now recognizes that the mentor-mentee relationship is a shared, meaningful experience for both the child and the volunteer. Everyday experiences mean BIG impacts for the child, the volunteer and the community at large.
Tickets are $50 and include Photos on the Red Carpet, appies and a red rose cocktail and an Intimate Q & A session with Jillian. There will be an EXCLUSIVE silent auction of items hand picked by Jillian. Proceeds are to benefit Big Brothers of Greater Vancovuer. Tickets are available at the clinic as well as Delta Laser, Earls Strawberry Hill or online here. If you are unable to attend the event but would still like to make a donation, any contribution is greatly appreciated.
