Started in 2017, the Big Impact Group is the young professionals group of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee (BBBS). Dedicated to supporting and advocating for BBBS in the community, the Big Impact Group co-hosts the Monster Ball, an annual Halloween masquerade themed fundraiser held in the mansion at Fontanel. In addition to individual or small group events and fundraisers, each Big Impact Group member serves on one of two subcommittees (recruitment or development), commits to making three connections that support BBBS Big recruitment efforts and is expected to raise $1,000 annually through individual, group, or employer contributions.
May 16th the Big Impact Group is hosting its first YP Mixer from 5-7:30 on City Tap’s Rooftop Bar!
Celebrating our 50th anniversary this year, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee is a youth mentoring organization, providing youth with an additional positive adult role model who will help defend their potential. This is accomplished through a one-to-one friendship that is professionally supported by social workers ensuring that children achieve success in life. BBBS is a volunteer and donor-driven organization. Whether in the Community-Based program, Site-Based program, or the new E-Mentoring program, BBBS has a program that fits your schedule! In each program “Bigs” and “Littles” are matched based on shared interests, hobbies, location, and availability. Once paired, they get together on a weekly basis. For more information on our programs, visit their website.
Other ways to get involved include: serving on an advisory committee, coordinating or hosting an event for current matches or youth on our wait-list, providing support through a specialized skillset or knowledge basis, or donating financially. Throughout the year, there are multiple event and engagement opportunities with BBBS. SOLID hosts an annual Top Golf tournament supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters- where they’ve broken fundraising records the past two years! If you love wine (or beer or bourbon), join BBBS on October 25th for the 15th annual Franklin Wine Festival. New this year will be a Bourbon tasting, a Bubble Lounge, and an incredible VIP area open to the public. For the bowling fans, BBBS hosts several Bowl for Kids’ Sake fundraising events throughout the year. Finally, we are always looking for table captains for our Better Beginnings Breakfast, held every November.
