Four Town Leaders Recognize January as National Mentoring Month

Together, We Are Defenders of Potential

The holidays are here and letters to Santa will soon be written and mailed. Help us help Santa make our Littles' dreams come true.

Carnival games, team relay races, six-foot Subway sandwiches and backpacks filled with goodies were the cause of many smiles for the children (Littles), adult volunteers (Bigs) and their families who attended a Beach Party at Walnut Beach in Milford.

Bright blue skies and a gentle breeze greeted more than 100 golfers who enjoyed 18 holes of golf June 11 at the New Haven Country Club. While raising money for the work of our agency, the golfers enjoyed lunch, cocktails, dinner and for the lucky (or should we say, talented) few – trophies! Check out the photo album for highlights of the day.

Friends, donors and sponsors came together on March 24 to raise funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of SWCT at the Nutmeg Bowl in Fairfield. The success of the day only added to the fun as kids and adults donned those attractive shoes and headed to their lanes. There were no perfect games, but lots of laughs, raffle prize winners, spares, strikes and only a few gutter balls!

Our friends and supporters do love their golf, so we accommodated them by hosting a 2nd tournament this year. The venue, Burning Tree Country Club in Greenwich was spectacular and the course was challenging, even for the scratch golfers in the group.

Whether your car starts or not, donating it can certainly start something in your community.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Connecticut is working with Next Step Living® to connect our friends and families to energy efficiency improvements through the Energize Connecticut  program to help homeowners save money and make their homes more comfortable.
