Big Brothers Big Sisters hosted a Valentine's Day Tea Party on Tuesday February 14th with the kids and Big Brothers and Sisters, parents, board members, and other volunteers at the Be You Lounge, Northgate Shopping Centre.
Representatives from Morguard, Sears and Best Buy were invited so that Big Brothers Big Sisters could express their gratitude for the donation of the Be You Lounge.
The Be You Lounge was designed and developed by Jordanna Grant of Morguard. She also recruited donations from Sears and Best Buy so that the lounge would be furnished for Big Brothers Big Sisters events said Darlene Jamieson, Executive Director in a news release.
Sugar Daddy donated 100 Valentines Day cupcakes for the event and announced that they were very honoured to be able to give to such a "phenomenal agency."
There were 75 people in attendance.
President Mike Bissett addressed the crowd and stated that "We would literally not be standing here today without the efforts of Jordanna and her team, who made the Be You Lounge a welcoming and accessible place for local children and their mentors."
