It’s The Right Thing To Do

It all started with one bottle of Hawthorn Mountain late harvest wine.

The year was 2006 and McNeill Nakamoto Recruitment Group was celebrating 10 years in business. We had a little party at our office, inviting clients and friends. Just a few weeks before the party, our team had a great idea to add a philanthropy element to our festivities, and host a modest silent auction benefiting Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland. We had already been a big supporter since 2005 , but true to our McNak spirit we wanted to do something different, and give our staff the opportunity to become directly involved.

Several merchants in our Yaletown neighbourhood generously donated items for the silent auction. The night arrived, people celebrated, and enjoyed bidding on many wonderful items.

The most popular item which received the most bids was that bottle of wine, donated by one of our staff members. It was during this evening that the idea of ‘GrapeJuice’ was born. Just a few months later we put together the first wine auction benefiting Big Sisters of Lower Mainland. Tomorrow night will be the 5th annual GrapeJuice wine auction.

Corporate social responsibility is part of our soul. It’s the right thing to do.
