How YOU Can Get Involved
Big Brothers Big Sisters provides kids with a Big to mentor them and assure they thrive and achieve success in their lives. There is always a need for Big’s in our community, but we know that not everyone can commit to that, and that’s okay. Do you love the organization but can’t make that commitment? There are ways you can get involved, too!
Participate in fundraisers
You’re not the only one interested in BBBS, a lot of really cool companies are, too! Burrachos in Onalaska will be donating 25% of their profits on October 20th from 4-8 pm to BBBS of the 7 Rivers Region if you mention it at check out. You know what’s even better than donating to a great cause? Getting a burrito for doing so.
Cars for Kids Sake is another awesome fundraiser. By giving the old car in your driveway to BBBS, you are providing funds for all of the opportunities given to kids through our organization.
Until January 31st, 2017, a portion of proceeds from the Treasure&Bond collection at Nordstrom will be donated directly to BBBS. This brand is dedicated to enriching the lives of kids, and we are all for that. Buy some new clothes for your kids while enriching the lives of others.
And that’s just the start. Stay updated on our social media for more fundraisers; they’re constantly being added! If you have a fundraiser you think would work well with us, or want to join one of our committees, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Go to an event
We host four major events each year that are not only fun, but help to make what we do possible. Get a team together and Bowl for Kids’ Sake in June or Golf for Kids’ Sake in August. Both are fun, friendly competitions that lead to a whole lot of good.
And for those who would rather dress up for a nice meal, Catered for Kids’ Sake in La Crosse is another great event. Sit back, relax, and enjoy food from different area caterers on March 2nd, 2017.
If you prefer a more casual dining experience, Taste of Winona is for you. This event is in August; more details will be announced soon. Stay tuned!
