To celebrate National Mentoring Month 2013, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Livingston County will host a special National Mentoring Month fundraiser for their
volunteers and agency friends to which the public is invited. On Friday, January 25, from 7:00 – 11:00pm, Oak Pointe Country Club will host the agency’s Silent Auction and reception. Tickets are $40.00 per person or $75.00 per couple in advance.
The event is sponsored by Blue Care Network of Michigan, 1st National Bank of Howell, and UAW Local 900 MAP Plant Chairman Bill Johnson. The public will join Big Brothers Big Sisters’ staff and board members to honor and recognize the many mentors and volunteers of the agency while enjoying great food and an open bar. Music will be provided by the Doc Brown Duo.
Big Brothers Big Sisters’ hope is that by bringing our friends and mentors together and showing them how much the organization appreciates them, people who are already invested in the cause will want to ‘Start Something [Again]’ and
others will see how mentoring helps kids succeed in school and life and want to
become part of their mentoring success. Big Brothers Big Sisters
carefully matches children of single, low-income or incarcerated parents or
sons and daughters of military personnel in long-term professionally supported
one-to-one mentoring relationships. Independent studies find “Littles” are more
likely than their peers to show improvement in school, their behavior and their
self-esteem, and aspirations.
