We have lots of sponsorship opportunities, including the popular “Toss Your Boss” sponsorship and our “Bigs in Blue” sponsorship, bringing attention to our Bigs in Blue program (law enforcement officers mentor students from the communities they protect and serve).

BBBSCR Board Members Joe Holston and Brian Lorenz completed a 126-Hole Golf Fore Kids’ Sake Challenge on June 2nd at Manada Golf Club. They were joined by Patrick Killiany and Craig Kreider, from Giant, who completed a joint relay challenge of 72 holes.

“The time to come together, and make a bigger impact, is now. Our youth are dealing with loneliness, anxiety and isolation, and they rely on their Bigs for friendship, guidance and emotional support. We’re able to continue matching youth with caring mentors thanks to our community and individuals like Joe, Brian, Patrick and Craig,” says Rote.

There’s still time to make a donation. We invite you to support our Board Member’s efforts and go bigger, together.

Middle and High School Students are invited to attend. REGISTER HERE
