As a business owner and community leader, I am very proud of my association with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County, where I serve on the board and had the chance to mentor a little for a day. You can see a picture of us here.
Last week Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County held its 3rd annual “Doorways” mentor recruitment event. It was a big success and since it was a hot day, the water rides became a main attraction. Check out the group shot of all the littles.
The event is designed to match business and community leaders with children waiting to be mentored through Big Brothers Big Sisters. The event also coincided with a Facebook campaign aimed at increasing awareness about the need for mentors and donors for the program. Users who become a “fan” of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County at www.facebook.com/bigbrooc will receive special discount offers from all participating partners. Big Brothers Big Sisters matches adult mentors with children in need.
Additional volunteers and donors are always welcome; call (714) 544-7773 or visit www.bigbrooc.org.
