Events

Throughout the year, Big Brothers Big Sisters of CentraBowling Eventsl Carolinas sponsors dozens of events that connect us to our community of Bigs, Littles and supporters. Whether it’s a match event at a Checkers game, or one of our signature fundraising events, there are many ways for you to discover what Big Brothers Big Sisters is all about.

“Fun-Raising” Events

Big Brothers Big Sisters combines fun with raising money at each of four signature “Fun-Raising” events. The money raised these events is critical to the success of our mentoring programs, accounting for about one quarter of our annual budget. Whether you enjoy bowling, golf, or a day at Lake Norman, there are several opportunities for you to support our mission. You can also attend our annual Big Breakfast, where you can learn more about our organization while helping us serve more children.
