The Big Gala: A Celebration of Mentoring

You're invited to a party to celebrate the power of mentoring.

Saturday, November 4, 2017 

(Save the date:  Saturday, November 3, 2018!)

 What a night!  Thank you to all our sponsors and guests for making
Big Brothers Big Sisters' 2017 Gala a BIG Success!

The future is under construction throughout Milwaukee, and its success depends on what we do today.  For over 40 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has been providing one-to-one mentoring to youth facing adversity--building community and providing children with role models who inspire them to close the door to negative influences, rise up to their greatest potential, and reach their dreams.

Together we are building minds, building dreams, and building futures for the children we serve!

For more information about the Big Gala, contact Nancy Bong, Special Events Coordinator, at (414) 831-4580 or email Nancy.
