For some, turning 30 can be a sign of “getting old” and a milestone they’d rather not celebrate. But Waterloo resident Julianna Yau Yorgan sees her 30th birthday as a way to give back to the community, and in lieu of a party, is organizing “The 30th”, a fundraiser to benefit SickKids Foundation.
“A lot of my friends were upset about turning 30, but I never saw the milestone as a negative thing,” says Julianna, founder and event coordinator of The 30th. “I decided to donate the funds to SickKids because there are a lot of kids out there who would love to get to the age of 30, and a lot of kids in this community rely on the specialized treatment and care at SickKids.”
There will be great food, music and a silent auction.
Where: Kitchener City Hall, 200 King St. W, Kitchener
When: December 10, 2011
