Mandarin celebrates Big Brothers Big Sisters month with dinner for two

Volunteer mentors in the Traditional Match Program will receive a dinner voucher so they can celebrate their friendship with their Little Brother or Little Sister at a Mandarin Restaurant location close to home.  Twelve Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies are involved in the promotion.

Mandarin Restaurants has been a tremendous supporter of local Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies for several years.  “We are proud to celebrate the commitment of Ontario’s volunteers and support children through our partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters,” says George Chiu, one of Mandarin’s founders and Chairman of the Mandarin Charitable Foundation. 

The free dinner for Big Brothers Big Sisters volunteers and the children in the Traditional mentoring program is just one of the many ways that Mandarin is supporting local agencies.  In addition to this promotion, former volunteers, staff and children in our programs are encouraged to register with Big Brothers Big Sisters Alumni.  In return, they will receive a complimentary dinner from Mandarin.
