Vickie Tsorlinis is a Very Special BBYOS Supporter
May 9, 2019
We rely on donations from many generous people to fund our work at Blake Boultbee. Vickie Tsorlinis is a very special BBYOS supporter who pledged to raise $25,000 because she was moved by the story of one our clients. To date Vickie has raised more than $6000.
Vickie's latest fundraising event on Saturday, April 6, The 4th of Its Kind Craft and Foodie Affair, featured more than 50 craft and food vendors the Royal Canadian Legion at Dawes Road and Danforth. Proceeds from the event will support the Red Door Shelter, Centre 55 and Blake Boultbee Youth Outreach Service.
In Vickie's words, "BBYOS is a very unique agency that has guided so many out of dark periods in their young lives... Volunteering in my kids' high school for 8 years and working with thousands of teenagers left me with many impressions, the most important being worth. Every single teenager is worth hearing, worth listening to, worth struggling for and worth guiding to a better place if it is within our power to do so."
Thank you Vickie, for helping us at BBYOS to have the power to continue helping at-risk youth and their families. We couldn't do it without your contribution.
