Perfect Match event to help Big Brothers Big Sisters

MIAMI COUNTY — The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Miami Valley is to improve the lives of children facing adversity and transform the communities in which they live, by providing strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 mentoring relationships.

They are growing the program in Miami County to serve more children.

To help them achieve their goals, together with John Ernst of Ernst Concrete and Mike Caughell of Bruns General Contracting, we are hosting the “Perfect Match” fundraiser on Thursday, October 1 at the Troy Country Club. This 4th annual event promises to be a fun evening for donors, featuring a multi-course meal and wine pairings as well as a silent auction of donated items.

Miami County youth benefitted from last year’s event, which raised more than $36,000. The Miami County staff of BBBSGMV served 64 youth in 2014, and is working in 2015 to continue the growth we’ve seen each of the past three years.
