Each year, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Carolinas hosts events to connect our community of
Bigs, Littles, partners and supporters. This year, we have re-envisioned these events to keep our
Littles and the community safe and still provide an opportunity for fun, engaging activity for our partners and community members.
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.
We have just released our 2020-2021 Sponsorship and Partnership Opportunities booklet linked here.
Updates for this year’s Signature Events include:
Bowl for Kids’ Sake will take place in February and March. We are excited to announce this year will be a QuizBowl for Kids’ Sake. All Teams will participate in a Virtual Trivia Night/s. Teams that reach the fundraising goal will be invited to attend our Super Team Party, which will be a safe distancing Drive-in movie event in March.
Big Day of Golf will be held on May 3rd at the Peninsula Country Club. This year we are doing something different. Stay tuned for details. This outing will follow the safety guidelines set by the state of NC for everyone’s safety.
We are hopeful the Big Day at the Lake will take place in July, but we will be waiting for the state to let us know what will be allowed.
Match Events for Bigs and Littles
We are constantly keeping our eye out for fun and inexpensive ideas for Bigs and Littles to spend time together. Thanks to our partnerships, we frequently receive limited numbers of tickets to activities and events, available on a first-come first-served basis.
To give Bigs an opportunity to get to know each other, share ideas and experiences, and network among peers, we hold events and activities frequently just for the adults. This is also a perfect chance to find out what it’s like to be a Big.
You can find out about Match Events and Bigs-Only Events through emails, our e-newsletter, or our Facebook page.
