Dear friends and donors -- the people in our village,
For those of you who were unable to attend Magical Moments 2017 we are proud to share that we not only met our goal of raising enough money to support 100 existing matches for an entire year, we exceeded our goal by a good margin.
This means our amazing community members came together and helped to change the lives of over 100 children in the Treasure Valley.
Magical Moments was magical. We got to hear from our Little Sister of the Year's mother, Julie, who shared how Big Brothers Big Sisters has impacted her entire family.
We also were honored to learn about Dr. Kathy Hagler's connection to mentoring and the amazing mentoring relationships she has benefited from in her life. Her generous offer to match the donations made that night was nothing short of inspiring.
There was a surprise challenge made that night by Don Reiman of Echelon Group, who committed to donating $1,000 per month for an entire year and challenged other businesses to do the same. We are excited to see where this call to action takes us.
Finally, we honored our Big Brother & Big Sister of the Year for 2016. Chris and Janice are shining examples of the incredible impact that a caring adult can have on the life of a child. They have truly changed their Little's lives for the better, forever.
On behalf of the entire Big Brothers Big Sisters' staff and Board of Directors, I would like to thank everyone who attended Magical Moments and those who supported us through sponsorships. We feel honored to be supported by such generous and committed people. Our village is strong!
We are already looking forward to next year
