Big Brother Big Sisters Magic Moments Ball


THANK YOU to everyone who joined us for the Big Brothers Big Sisters Magic Moments Ball.  On the evening of Friday, April 19th OVER 600 supporters and volunteers of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Minnesota gathered at the St. Cloud River's Edge Convention Center to celebrate 45 incredible years of supporting the youth in our community.

Thanks to YOU, the event raised over $130,000 exceeding the $100,000 goal!  Your generosity will help 100-130 children and youth with caring adult mentors.  You also helped us get our message out to countless people about the possibility of mentoring a young person by becoming a "big"  in our program.
