  • We desperately need your help!

    We have two crucial needs that are essential to the planning and prep for ‘Boutique Day 2019’…

    1. We need a VENUE. A space large enough to hold all of our inventory (gowns, shoes, jewelry, etc) and change rooms, plus space for hair and make up, alterations, photographs, and a buffet. Ideally, we would like to have a space in Surrey, close to transit lines. Please see some of the pictures from past events to get an idea of the type of space we are looking for.

    2. We need CASH donations. While we are always grateful for in-kind support, without cash, we are unable to pay for the venue, insurance, food, decorations…all the things that make the day special for our grads. As we now are a Registered Canadian Charitable organization, we can issue tax receipts for charitable donations.

    If you can help in any way,  please message us as soon as possible!

    Our 8th annual ‘Boutique Day’ for grads in Surrey and New Westminster was held on March 4th.  Over 50 volunteers pulled together to provide a day of pampering for nearly 60 students.  Many thanks to everyone who helped to make this day possible – our donors, sponsors, and especially our volunteers.  We couldn’t have done it without you!
