BBBSMC on Good Day Chicago
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Chicago was featured on Fox 32's Good Day Chicago on June 23, 2016. Darlene Hill interviewed one of our four-year matches, who are a great example of the commitment, friendship, and mentorship that makes our program so successful and gives kids a safe place to learn and play.

On Monday, June 20, 2016 Marquette Associates hosted their 4th Annual Marquette Associates Golf Classic. Over 42 foursomes and 45 sponsors came together for a beautiful day on the course and raised over $335,000 for BBBSMC! A very special thank you to BBBSMC board member Brian Wrubel and the entire Marquette Associates team for their continued support.
In the last year, BBBSMC provided over 1,650 youth facing
adversity with positive, caring adult mentors. We have completed over 63 year
end recognition ceremonies in our Site Based program, and are preparing for the
greatest culmination of our efforts at our 4th Annual Graduation Gala
on July 14th – featuring our largest graduating class!
