On Saturday, February 28, 2015, Big Brothers Big Sisters will host the agency gala, The Big Event, at the spectacular JW Marriot Marquis. Over 750 of South Florida’s most influential business leaders and philanthropists will enjoy a Bacardi-hosted cocktail reception and auction village featuring travel, wines, and fine dining experiences, followed by dinner and dancing. Matt Gorson will serve as the gala’s Honorary Chair. The Big Event is presented by The Carnival Foundation and Carnival Corporation & PLC. Table sponsorships range from $7,500 to $75,000. It is always an unforgettable, uplifting evening.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Miami is one of the country’s largest Big Brother Big Sister affiliate agencies. We have been transforming young lives in this community for over 50 years and have a reputation for being the “gold standard” of mentoring service providers. By providing vulnerable young people with caring adult mentors who help guide and inspire them, we often make the difference between a child heading for jail or a young person going to college. With our agency’s waiting list at 1,000 children, we have set a goal to raise $1 million dollars at this event to help reduce that staggering number.

For sponsorships, tickets and information, please call 305-644-0066 or email Shaunte Young at
