Wake Basketball and Big Brothers Big Sisters!
Feb 22, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5
Join the Jaycees in attending the Wake Forest vs. Pitt basketball game with children from the Big Brothers Big Sisters waitlist! Unfortunately, not all interested children can be matched with mentors right away, so we will take some of those kids to a game.
We are subsidizing a portion of the ticket price for volunteers, so the cost is only $5 to attend. You may pay using cash, PayPal, or Venmo ([email protected]). We are looking for 8 volunteers to match with the 8 children who will be attending the event.
When “Littles” are put on the wait list to get a “Big”, girls often wait up to 6 month and boys up to 2 years. It is really important to take this opportunity to engage these kids in activities and show them that people care about them. This is a one time event with this group of kids, but if you connect with a child and want to become a long term “Big” that is by all means encouraged.
Wake Forest generously donated tickets for the children to be able to attend.
