In late October, 500 business and community leaders came together to honour John Montalbano and celebrate the incredible work of Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland.
In presenting Montalbano with the 2016 Luminary Award, Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland offered guests the opportunity to witness the depth of his commitment to mentorship of girls and young women through stories from colleagues and peers.
The Luminary Award Soiree is more than an award ceremony. It is an opportunity for the community to see the impact Big Sisters’ mentorship is having on individuals, families, and society as whole.
The event struck a chord with many: the evening generated $450,000 for Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland–a record fundraising amount for the organization.
