SparkFest – Sparkling Inspiration

May 19, 2015

Sparkfest is the annual SWOVA fundraiser that the youth from Pass It On organize. This year on April 30, they really outdid themselves: Music by Ashleigh Ball from Hey Ocean, Tara Maclean & Suzanne Little, spoken word from Morgan Klassen, and the GISS imrov team. Not only did the Pass It On youth organise the show and silent auction, but some also shared wonderful music and stories with us. The room was packed with all ages and the atmosphere was sparkling.

The event raised $3,000 which will go directly towards running the Pass In On program next year.

Thanks to all the generous silent auction donors and to those who bought the wonderful items. Thanks to all the wonderful performers. Thanks to the fabulous team at the Harbour House. Thanks to our Pass It On funders this year: BC Gaming and Island Savings.

And a huge thanks to Kate Nash and the wonderful girls from Pass It On who organized and put on a fabulous, fun evening for all of us to enjoy!

You Are Worthy, You Are Valuable, You Are Seen… Pass it On

We don’t always know what impact our programs have on people’s lives until later, sometimes much later. We found out on a spring evening in a beautiful barn at Stone Bridge Farm where thirty former participants joined a reunion of our Pass it On Girls program. Kate...
