Morguard, which manages Sevenoaks Shopping Centre, and Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) celebrate the uniqueness of every girl across Canada with a trade show on Saturday, Sept. 21.

The event is part of the national BeYou campaign and takes place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Sevenoaks (32900 South Fraser Way).

The trade show includes representatives from various stores and organizations such as BBBS, the Abbotsford Youth Commission and GirlKind.

There will also be a photo booth, mini makeovers, games, prizes, and entertainment by Splitz Gymnastics, Triumph Acrobatics, Legacy Dance, Valley Stars, Dynamic Dance and more.

The Art on Sneakers Battle runs from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Participants under the age of 18 will create designs on sneakers provided for the competition, followed by the selection of the top 10 designs.

The 10 finalists will be displayed until 2:30 p.m. and voted on by the public. The winner of the public vote receives a $100 gift card and is then featured on the BeYou website, where a national public vote takes place.

The grand prize winner receives a $500 shopping spree.
