The Big Event is Big Brothers Big Sisters signature event- celebrating our 6th year in 2020! Presented by General Mills, this event celebrates our programs and the impact that our organization has made over the last 25 years in Northwest Arkansas.
All money raised at this event supports the 226 active mentoring relationships and 461 children that Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Arkansas has served this year. As our area continues to grow we are seeing a larger need of mentors for children facing adversity; a caring adult who will help to ignite their fullest potential, enabling them to be confident and capable members of our society.

2019 Big Brother of the Year
This year, we honored our Big of the Year, Jeff Young. Jeff was matched with Zayne in 2014 and there was an instant bond. Jeff has not only become a positive light to his Little Brother but to his entire family. Jeff Young got involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters as a way to give back to a child in our community, but often says he gets more out of the relationship than his Little. It has been an honor to watch this friendship grow and flourish over the past 5 years and we cannot wait to see where the future will take them! (See Jeff and Zaynes video).
