The impact it has on children in the program is priceless, and the heartwarming stories we've collected from Big and Littles in our program over the years are endless.Mentoring is a powerful thing. It’s fun, most anyone can be a mentor and it’s life-changing. By simply participating in fun activities together and forming a trusting bond with a child, it can potentially rewrite a child's future, for the better. However, for as big of an impact that mentoring makes on a child, you’ll be amazed at what it will do for you, too

    Sorry we missed the wine auction. As you know the weather was not kind. I'm sure we would have spent at least this amount on something. Please use it to as needed. We were suppose to attend with Doug K from the Boathouse but weathered out :( Bob & Jan Brammer
