The eighth annual Big Hearts For Big Kids fundraiser goes Saturday, Feb. 11 in the main hall at the ENTREC Centre at Evergreen Park.
“Seven years ago, I couldn't have imagined that Big Hearts for Big Kids would raise a million dollars for our local GPYESS - Sunrise House,” said organizer Tenille. “But after watching the generosity of the Grande Prairie community over the past seven years, witnessing the spirit in the room for this event, a crazy number like that seemed truly possible.
“Thank you to every soul who has been a part of this from the beginning; every volunteer, committee member, sponsor, auction bidder, artist, and anyone who has attended and participated. You are the reason this event continues to change lives of the youth in our community, and keep the doors open to a shelter where they can find the love, support, and encouragement they need.”
