In the ten years since Tenille started her fundraiser, “Big Hearts For Big Kids” has raised over $1.9 million for Sunrise House, a local youth shelter in Tenille’s hometown of Grande Prairie, Alberta Canada.

Proceeds from this year’s event will once again benefit Sunrise House as well as Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee’s Troop 6000 — an initiative that supports girls without permanent housing.
