A Cause for Celebration! Gala

A celebration of the 100th Anniversary of Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring in Canada was held at Le Parc in Thornhill. Big Brothers Big Sisters of York (BBBSY) commemorated this important event by honouring Frank Stronach for his part in introducing the Big Brothers Big Sisters agency to York Region and for his previous engagement as a Big Brother and his outstanding commitment to the program. Representatives from all nine York Region communities attended to recognize and applaud the value given by BBBSY to so many. It was a true celebration of the positive difference BBBSY mentoring programs have made. Proceeds from the gala will support the ongoing investment in the lives of children and youth through BBBSY mentoring programs.
