Big Brothers Big Sisters Hosts “Big Event”
Over 650 guests enjoyed a magical evening at the JW Marriott Marquis when Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Miami hosted The Big Event 2012: Inspire. The fundraiser featured a festive silent auction village, dinner, dancing with the Steve Chase band and a moving performance , “Reach” by the Miami Choral Academy. The Big Event was chaired by Bonnie Crabtree and Bill Jones, and Auction co-chairs were Stella Holmes and Lori Brown. The Inspiration-themed dining room was created by Jose Dans and his talented team at Wow Factor. The Big Event 2012 was dedicated to Rick Adams, a longtime Big Brothers Big Sisters board member and big brother who passed away in December. Rick co-chaired the gala last year, and he was especially missed at this year’s event. For more information about BBBS, call 305-644-0066.
