You’ve probably been seeing a lot of our posts about the Big Celebration. Celebrity guests, sponsor thank yous, auction items going up for bid. But what is this event really?
The Big Celebration is our annual spring fundraising event. And this year’s theme? Viva Las Vegas.
You know what that means, right? Eating gourmet food while enjoying live entertainment. You want poker, we’ve got it. Roulette? Check. Looking for something to spend all your winnings on? Let me just direct you on over to our live and silent auction areas.
And you get to do all this while dressed in fancy Vegas outfits? I know, I know- It’s the dream.
Is having the time of your life not enough incentive to join us? Consider how your support will make a difference in the lives of others. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central MA/MetroWest is a one-on-one mentoring program that positively impacts the lives of the nearly 2,000 youth and volunteers we serve. The results after just one year of being matched with a Big Brother or Sister are striking:
- 76% of Littles improve their self-confidence
- 74% improve their academic grades
- 67% feel more social acceptance
- 42% are less likely to engage in risky behavior
Supporting our programs and this event at any level means you are supporting a mentoring program that literally changes lives. And all of the money raised from this event will go toward improving our programs even more as we strive to touch the lives of every youth in need of a caring adult presence.
So attending the Big Celebration is a win-win situation, really. How do you buy your tickets? Glad you asked. Click here.
Get ready for a memorable night, everyone. See you Friday the 13th!
