Big & Little Holiday Party - a SUCCESS AGAIN!
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago hosted the annual Big & Little Holiday Party on Saturday, December 6th at U.S. Cellular Field with over 650 Bigs, Littles, board members, sponsors, friends, and staff of our agency. Everyone had a blast decorating sugar cookies, making bracelets at the crafts table, creating Holiday Greeting Cards with PaperWoven for their collection, and dancing the day away on the dancefloor with DJ Betty.
Rachel Bhwagat, Site Based Coordinator of Big Brothers Big Sisters said, - "All of my matches had a great time! They really enjoyed themselves and loved decorating cookies!
All of the children ages 7 - 12 were able to receive a gift from Santa at the event thanks to the generous toys donated by The Lund & Company Invention, LLC and their toy company partners. Children ages 13+ received a gift card.
SPECIAL shoutout to Bruce Lund of the Lund & Company Invention LLC for his ride 3,000 miles across the country to raise money on behalf of this holiday party! We raised over $29,000 from this campaign and we cannot thank him enough for his dedication to our holiday party over the years!
And a BIG thanks to our sponsors for the 2014 Holiday Party!
