A Better World: Supporting children through action

Unlocking a child’s true potential creates a future where anything is possible.

What do food, golf and jewels have in common?  They are all components of charity events taking place in the Lower Mainland in the upcoming week.  Women and men across the Lower Mainland (and beyond) will have the opportunity to support Big Brothers Big Sisters BC,  the Pacific Family Autism Centre and the Mediated Learning Academy.

May 28th and 29th, 2011 – Raising Dough Event

If you happen to be driving by a Cobs, consider stopping by to taste-test the newest addition to their menu – the Apple and Butterscotch scone. This specially designed scone is full of diced Granny Smith apples and butterscotch chips.   Fifty cents from every  scone purchased will be donated to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of BC organization.  The goal of this organization is simple – that every child in Canada who needs a mentor should have a mentor.   What a wonderful vision!

Golfing, networking and raising money for a great cause

If you’re looking for an opportunity to enjoy golfing in a gorgeous location, while meeting other gorgeous and talented women, the 24th Annual Women’s Media Gold Classic event on June 2nd, 2011 will be the place to be.   At this charity event you will have the opportunity to mix and mingle with over 300 talented women from across the Lower Mainland and province who work in the media arts and in other disciplines.  The participants will raise money for the new Pacific Family Autism Centre and the Mediated Learning Centre.  After the golf event there will be a gala banquet at the Century Plaza Hotel and Spa.

Get Glamorous While you Golf

While attending the event, if you’re looking to update your work and personal wardrobes, plan to spend some time chatting with Stacy Williams, a local and talented Independent Stylist for Stella & Dot.  Stacy will be situated  by the registration table.  Don’t underestimate the “wow, where did you get that?” factor that comes when you wear these  hot, fashion forward products – all  available at affordable prices. (Half of the collection is under $50.)  A portion of proceeds from Stacy’s sales will benefit the Pacific Family Autism Centre.

Here is a message from Stacy:

I’m looking forward to sharing some style with all of you ladies. I will be set up at registration and will be donating 25% of sales to raise funds for the Pacific Autism Centre in support of dear friends of ours. Please my link and instructions so that we can raise the maximum amount. For more information or to shop online, go to  www.stelladot.com/williams and click on ‘find your hostess’. Enter Pacific Autism and begin shopping. Best, Stacy

In case you are wondering, the gorgeous necklace Stacy is wearing in this photo is from the Stella & Dot line.

Every child needs all the support they can to access the resources that they need.  During these recessionary times, when key funding is being cut to important programmes, these charity events can make a big difference in the lives of children in British Columbia.  Please consider sharing this page link on your Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr accounts, or via E-mail.  In this simple way you too can support these events, even if you can’t participate.
