Thank you so much to the team and staff at 10 Barrel Brewing Company! Big Brothers Big Sisters was selected as the beneficiary of their Charity Night for the month of August. All of the net profits from the evening , totaling $1,423.62, will go towards the programs at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Idaho. Thank you to all that came down to join in the laughter and good food and brews! We love our community here in the Treasure Valley!
We had such a great time at this year's Ice Cream Social and Backpack Event sponsored by DirecTV. We were able to outfit 30 children with backpacks full of school supplies for the upcoming year. Our Bigs, Littles, staff and volunteers had fun in the sun playing volleyball, kickball, extreme Frisbee and making crazy hats. The ice cream truck in the park made for the perfect way to celebrate the Backpack Event. Thank you to DirecTV, all of their volunteers and their efforts!

We had some great submissions for our Big Cheese contest so far! Our first theme was revisiting where Bigs and Littles first met. The photos we received were so fun and full of big cheesy grins. Congratulations to Brandi and Victoria for winning this round of #BBBSbigcheese photo contest. They first met at the park three years ago and are continuing to have fun there today. They will be receiving a $25 gift card to TJ Maxx to share for some Back to School shopping.
We will be continuing the photo contest through November 23rd. Keep your eyes open for this week's theme and for all the adorable and fun photos being posted to our Facebook and our Instagram.
