What do you get when you mix wine, Lamborghinis and Vancouver philanthropists? You get Grape Juice and that is exactly where we were on March 6th. Grape Juice is a wine auction for the benefit of the Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland.
Grape Juice was created by MAC Marketing Solutions and McNeill Nakamoto 7 years ago to raise much needed funds to facilitate the matching process for over 100 at risk young girls on the Big Sisters waitlist. It costs $2,000 to make and maintain one Big & Little Sister match for one year. Many of these young girls suffer from low-self esteem and social isolation due to poverty, abuse or neglect. For every Little Sister that is successfully matched with a volunteer mentor, a quiet revolution of hope takes place.
In true Solus Decor tradition, we participated by donating some concrete décor products for the auction to help raise money for the Big Sisters of BC. Kris (shown above) is our beloved sales associate that facilitated our involvement in the auction. We’re pretty sure he didn’t mind getting an opportunity to check out some fabulous Lamborghinis worth over $250,000 or tasting some wines from Roaring Twenties wine co. in the process.
If you’d like to become a Big Sister or donate to this charity, please contact Jessica for more information. And of course, there is always Grape Juice 2015 which you can attend, so make sure to keep an eye out for when tickets become available next year on the Grape Juice website.
