Jillian Harris Mamas for Mamas Brunch Fundraiser

Hello loves!! Guess what?! Remember a while back when I had this awesome idea of hosting a private brunch at my house to raise money for Mama’s for Mama’s?! Welp … IT’S FREAKIN HAPPENING AND WE’RE SO EXCITED!!!!

Tha’s right!! The girls and I have been working like CRAZY to lock down all of the nitty-gritty details to make sure this event is a SUCCESS!! So, to give you a little background on Mama’s for Mama’s (in case you’re not sure what their organization is all about) and some background on WHY we are doing this and WHAT exactly it is we plan on doing … Consider this your “Save the Date” invitation!!!

You could be sitting here in November!!! 👇🏼

Who?

Mama’s for Mama’s is an organization that helps low-income mamas and families that fall between the cracks when it comes to government aid and funding. Mamas for Mamas takes gently used items and donates it back to the families and also provides all kinds of support, nutrition advice, counselling, an office for mamas to use/work from, baby staples, career guidance … the list goes on!

What?

If you are one of the 10 lucky brunch participants you will spend the morning sipping wine and feasting on a delicious brunch by Jeremy Luypen, Award Winning/Executive Chef at Predator Ridge Resort … all while being serenaded by Canada’s own Aaron Pritchett in an unplugged acoustic performance!!! You’ll also walk away with a swag bag fit for the stars (valued at over $1000 and includes all of my favourite stuff!!), after a private tour of my home!

We will be auctioning off 8 seats for the private brunch, you can bid on any of the 8 seats here. If you are the highest bidder at the end of the auction, you will be notified by us and your seat at the brunch will be secured. We will also be GIVING AWAY 2 seats!! If you make a donation here (top right-hand corner) you will automatically be entered to win one of two seats at the brunch!!

When?

  • The online auction is set to go LIVE on Tuesday, September 26th at 8am and will CLOSE on Friday, September 29th at 8am!
  • The Brunch will be held on Saturday, November 4th!

Please note: Flights and accommodations are not covered!

Where?

My house!! Yes … that’s right, I’m inviting 10 lucky ladies to join myself and Team Jilly for the ultimate brunch!! I mean, who doesn’t want to sip on some vino and listen to Aaron Pritchett?!?! UMMM HELLOOOOO!!!

Why?

Well, the incredible team at Mama’s for Mama’s just locked down a space and we wanted to help them refresh their new “home” and make it beautiful and welcoming for everyone who walks through those doors so ALL proceeds will be going directly to this amazing organization and to their renovation so they can continue to help other mamas in need!

    I believe the date needs to be corrected… Nov 10th is a Friday.

  • I the article it says Auction goes live on Tuesday,but at the end you say it goes live Sunday. Alittle confusing

  • Hi Team Jilly,

    My husbands work matches donations we donate each year…for example if we donated $1000 for a seat then they would match it making $2000. Would that work when donating? Would love to contribute as much as we can. Fingers crossed! Would love this as my 40th bday gift!

  • Ok… I probably won’t be the highest bidder but! I am going to donate and cross my fingers that I am one of two lucky ladies that get to join… marking the date in my calendar… coming from California… Nov 4th 🤞🏼😂 Still LOVE that you’re doing this!!

      • Jillian Harris  • 

        Our donation portion of the auction has crashed due to an overwhelming amount of donations pouring in so we are working on getting that sorted! xoxo

    • I’m having a hard time figuring out how to make a donation on the auction website, is there a big button that says “Donate” that I’m not seeing? Please help!

      • Jillian Harris  • 

        Currently, our donation portion of the auction has crashed due to an overwhelming amount of donations pouring in so we are working on getting that sorted and will let you know over on social media when that has been resolved. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!! XOXO

  • If you bid on a seat and win, do you get a tax reciept for it?

  • Jillian, how do you donate? I went to click the link you provided and there is nothing in the right corner?

    Thanks!
    xo

    • Jillian Harris  • 

      Eeeepp!! Our donation portion of the auction has crashed!! We are working on getting that sorted and will let you know over on social media when that has been resolved. XOXO

  • this is amazing- good luck everyone!

  • Awesome idea! I hope you make a lot of money for the cause. I live in Chicago and work at non profit so trip too expensive for me to get there but I am going to donate anyway. Maybe I can donate my seat if I win to one of the mommas your helping there!

  • Michelle Jeannotte  • 

    donate button is not working/ not visible….

  • Having troubles paying to donate! The system does not seem to be accepting a TD Mastercard!

    Any chance this can be fixed? Anyone else having this problem?

    • Jillian Harris  • 

      Hi Jackie – I’m not sure what might be causing that issue?? Maybe reach out to 32Auctions to see if they can help!! xoxo

  • Juliette Hillier  • 

    Great news that your auction is doing so well! Can i ask where your glasses are from/brand? The darker ones on instagram this morning. Thanks

  • Amanda Cameron  • 

    Hi Jillian,

    I’m still getting the same error message I was getting this morning when the website stopped working due to the amount of donations coming in, it says –

    32auctions, LLC
    Return to 32auctions, LLC
    Error Message
    We can’t process your payment right now, so please try again later. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

    I’ve even tried two different browsers (Internet Explorer and Google Chrome). I would really like to donate, but at this moment, it doesn’t look like it’s meant to be.

    Amanda Panda

    • Jillian Harris  • 

      Hi Amanda!! Hmmm … I’m not sure what’s happening as other donations are going through … maybe try clearing your cache?? Or reach out to the 32Auctions team directly to see if they can help you troubleshoot!!! XOXO

  • Crossing fingers and toes for a wild card seat! Such a wonderful thing you’re doing, Jilly. Can I call you Jilly? Haha.

    Much love.
    JC

  • Susy Fossati  • 

    I just made a donation online! Are we limited to one entry per donation? Hope you raise tonnes of money!!
    Also…I’ve been looking everywhere…what color [pale] blue paint are your walls and doors? Fingers, toes, everything crossed!!!!

  • Angela Weeks  • 

    I LOVE that you are supporting such an amazing charity! I also started a very small charity similar to this in Chilliwack years ago but had to close it due to funding and a move to Ontario 🙁 . I have always wanted to be a philanthropist ! You truly are a kind hearted, beautiful soul that brightens our days! Thank you for all that you do Jillian! I will also be donating to this amazing cause and fingers crossed that I win one of the seats at your table! IT would be an experience I would never forget 🙂

  • Thanks for the opportunity. I want to donate (all be it small) , on behalf of one of my granddaughters. ‘Katlyn Belanger Der’. She & her hubby had a son last May,here at KGH.. She is a wonderful and loving mother. I raised three children (born in Peace River). I know how challenging and sometimes difficult things can be. Katlyn with hubby, Michael are doing an outstanding job raising this little man (Beckham) of theirs. Im very proud of them. Thanks again. I now will put my donation in on her behalf.
