 2018 Event Committee 


Big Brothers Big Sisters is not your typical organization.  We help children realize their potential and build their futures.  We nurture children and strengthen communities.  We couldn’t do any of it without you.  Since 1980, Big Brothers Big Sisters and their dedicated core of volunteer mentors have continued to help young people in Southwestern Illinois grow into caring, competent and confident adults.

In 2001, Big Brothers Big Sisters began serving youth in Southwestern Illinois by matching high school students who served as mentors to elementary and middle school students.  Since 2001, more than 1,000 youth in Southwestern Illinois have been matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister mentor.  Funds raised from this golf tournament will help support the work we do with students who want and need a mentor.

Over the years, we’ve seen many of the youth that were mentored in elementary school volunteer to be Big Brothers or Big Sisters while in high school. They understand the importance of “paying it forward” by giving the gift of friendship to a younger student.  All funds raised from the tournament will stay right here in Southwestern Illinois, providing training and support for the youth throughout the year.

We ask that you consider how you might support the work of Big Brothers Big Sisters by being a tournament sponsor or golfer.  Thank you for your consideration.

If you cannot attend our event, please consider a tax-deductible donation to our organization. Your support is appreciated.
