I've teamed up with another event for Big Brothers, Big Sisters. This will be a fund raising event where all proceeds will be donated directly to this organization and benefits children in our own area. On average, it takes about $1000 to be able to match a "Big" with a "Little". I'd really appreciate if you would be able to donate to this worthy cause so things don't happen like in the movie "Role Models". Above is the link to my page and a description of the event and organization.
