Big Impact Awards 2016

On October 24th, we were honored to present various organizations from our community with the most prestigious award Big Brothers Big Sisters of the 7 Rivers Region provides, the Big Impact Award. This award recognizes the efforts organizations make in order to accomplish our mission of providing kids with a positive role model and mentor.

This year, the awards were presented to: Inland, La Crosse Community Foundation, La Crosse Radio Group, Leighton Broadcasting, Marine Credit Union, Midtown Foods, Trust Point, Winona Community Foundation and WXOW.


The awards ceremony was held at the Grand Hotel Ballroom. Representatives from the organizations were able to socialize, enjoy appetizers and receive recognition for their dedication to BBBS. It was a fun night all around.


Nicki Kammel, our interim Executive Director, said, “We are proud to honor these organizations who, through the sharing of their time, talent, and resources, do so much for the children and families we serve.” This couldn’t be more true. Our mission simply could not be reached without the organizations and businesses that support us. Thank you, again!
