The Big Celebration 2019
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Mass/ Metrowest is thrilled to present our annual spring fundraiser! This year’s Big Celebration theme is A Night at the Races, so get ready for a memorable night. The event will feature Kentucky Derby races, betting, casino tables, fabulous live & silent auctions, and much more. We invite you to come, enjoy, and have some fun!
Make a BIG Impact
Why support The Big Celebration? Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Mass & MetroWest is a one-on-one mentoring program that makes a real difference in the lives of the nearly 2,000 youth and volunteers we serve. Connecting children facing adversity with caring adults truly makes an impact. In fact, after just one year being matched with a Big, 76% of Littles improve their self-confidence, 74% improve their academic grades, 67% say that they feel more social acceptance and 42% are less likely to engage in risky behavior. By supporting this event on any level, you are supporting mentoring programs that change lives.
