This month, Miss604 is proud to sponsor BC Youth Week, with over 60 events for youth, by youth, across the province including the Surrey Youth Showcase. I am also proud to be the Social Fort Ambassador for Canuck Place’s Best Day Ever Blanket Fort on May 13th and a sponsor of the Surrey International Children’s Festival May 25-27. We also have Mother’s Day, a long weekend, then summer is right around the corner! Look for all of these events and more below:
