Thank You!

Thank you to all our sponsors, donors, guests and volunteers for making BIG Brunch a ‘BIG’ success! By supporting our second annual BIG Brunch, presented by Canadian Western Bank, you will bring acceptance, confidence, resilience and hope to the lives of young people in our community who need those gifts the most. You have truly made a BIG difference!

BIG Brunch raised over $105,000 and saw over 300 members of the community come together to ring in the holidays while supporting kids in need of caring mentors.

On behalf of all of us at Big Brothers Big Sisters, including all of the ‘Littles’ and ‘Bigs’ we serve, thank you!

We hope to see you all next year.
