Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Dane County hosted the Dream BIG Gala, their biggest fundraiser of the year, to celebrate the positive impact the organization and volunteers have on the hundreds of kids participating in the mentorship program. As a strong supporter of our communities we live, work, and play in, Strand volunteers were selected to share their experience in this short video.
The Gala allows the Littles (children) to tell their powerful stories of the mentorship program, and the money raised will allow for an additional 300 kids to join the program, which many are on a waiting list.
Since 1966, BBBS’s mission has been to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever, so that all children achieve success in life.
