The Big Celebration: A Night at the Races


The Big Celebration 2019

Thank you so much for coming out to our 'Big Celebration' annual spring fundraiser! This year’s Big Celebration theme was A Night at the Races and held on Saturday, April 6 at 7 PM at the AC Hotel in Worcester, MA. The event featured Kentucky Derby races, betting, casino tables, fabulous live & silent auctions, and much more. We thank you again to all who came out and we hope to see you next year!

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.
