We invite you to celebrate our BIG night at home with your favorite wine or cocktail, and delicious treats just as you would enjoy a lovely meal on Saturday night.

Tune in for our online program to learn more about our pivot to virtual programming during the pandemic and maintaining our positive, measurable results. Not only will you have a fun evening, but guests have an opportunity to make an investment directly to our programs, and participate in our web-based auction. Last year we netted close to $500,000 with a sell-out crowd but we need you to tune in this year and share the link with others!
It costs about $1,500 to provide a child with a mentor for one year—covering background checks and ongoing support services that are the key to ensuring that each match between a Big and a Little will be successful. Last year, 97% of the kids in our program went on to the next grade level and 99% had no involvement with the juvenile justice system. For the children we serve, the impact of your financial support can last a lifetime. With your help, more at-risk children in our community will have a caring adult role model in their lives—and a much better chance of fulfilling their potential.
