Big Brothers Big Sisters kicked off its third annual 100 Men in 100 Days campaign on Jan. 21 and will run through April 30. This year’s campaign theme is “Changing children’s lives for the better forever.”
The campaign challenges men to become mentors and role models through Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Triangle. Volunteers have the opportunity to help shape a child’s future for the better by empowering him to achieve while providing advice and inspiration. Big Brothers and Little Brothers can share all kinds of activities - play sports, go on a hike, read books, eat pizza and more.
BBBST hosts several events during the course of the campaign to give men an opportunity to interact with like minded men who are interested in learning more about becoming a mentor and giving back to their community.
The first event will be held Feb. 27 at the PNC Arena. Come out enjoy a great basketball game, free food in a premium suite provided by LORD Corporation and PNC Arena. Men are encouraged to bring a friend with them to learn more about Big Brothers Big Sisters and how mentoring can impact their lives. Spaces are limited. Please RSVP to Barron Damon at 919-655-6004 or email email@example.com.
