Flappers and “swells” will fill Skyline Lodge & Oak Steakhouse on September 7, 2023 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cashiers and Highlands’ Roaring ‘20s Fundraiser.
Costumes are definitely encouraged for this rousing affair from 5:30p to 8:30pm featuring libations, live music and a delicious supper catered by Oak Steakhouse.
“We’re excited about the glitzy evening we have planned for supporters of our work in Cashiers and Highlands,” said Danielle Hernandez, Program Director and Equity Specialist of BBBS services in the county. “It’s going to be a night full of glitz and glam!”
BBBS of Cashiers and Highlands, like all programs in the counties that Big Brothers Big Sisters of Western North Carolina serves, matches caring adult mentors with children 6- to 15-years-old who need an extra set of ears to hear their concerns. Carefully vetted “Bigs” help their “Littles” with homework (in BBBSWNC’s school-based program) and expose them to new experiences (in its community-based program).
Many Bigs and Littles go for walks, get ice cream, or take in cultural and sports opportunities in their area. BBBSWNC organizes many of the events they do together, like rafting, pool parties, and college/career preparation workshops.
For more than 40 years, BBBSWNC has been helping local children tap their potential to find whatever in life brings them joy and success. Its one-on-one matches empower youth and strengthen communities. Affiliated with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, the nation’s largest evidence-based mentoring organization, BBBSWNC and BBBS of Cashiers Highlands, help young people build their futures by recruiting and training “Bigs” they can look up to.
