Ambiance supports youth mentoring with ‘Sip & Shop’
–Ambiance Boutiques in downtown San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles held a two-day fundraiser totaling $2,057 for Big Brothers Big Sisters. Since 2016, Ambiance has donated over $5,200 to the agency. These donations, combined with additional sources, allow the agency to serve over 260 children throughout the county by pairing vulnerable local youth with quality adult role models.
“We love being able to give back to as many local charities as possible and Big Brothers Big Sisters especially helps promote partnerships with our young citizens,” says Ambiance SLO Store Manager, Jacqui Clark-Charlesworth. “We are fortunate to be able to be in a position to raise funds for this organization and partner with other local community leaders to help make San Luis Obispo a better place to live for all of us.”

About Big Brothers Big Sisters
For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. Most children they serve are in single-parent, low-income families or in households where a parent is incarcerated. As a part of the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, they make meaningful, monitored friendships between adult volunteers and children.
Funding provides for a system of ongoing evaluation and support that is proven by independent studies to help families by improving the odds that participating children will perform better in school, avoid violence and illegal activities, and have stronger relationships with their parents and others.
