On Nov 12, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Alaska hosted its annual "Dream Big!" Luncheon, which raised $30,000 to help us match a Big Brother or Big Sister to every child who needs or wants one. Many people helped make this event a success.
Many thanks to our willing and capable table hosts: Betsy Brenneman, Bill Peters, Claire Richardson, Cody Bennett, Debbie Reifenstein, Denny DeWitt, Dirk Miller, Jan Rutherdale, Ken Leghorn, Lynnette Cole, Margaret Pugh, Marian and John Clough, Marie Olson, Marsha Bennett, Robin Sahnow, Rosemary Gruening, Sally Rue, Scott Fischer, Susan Bus and Wayne Jensen.
Thank you to our program speakers, whose words reverberated in the hearts of our guests: Big Sister Sherry Patterson and her Little Sister Elizabeth; Big Sister Marcy Peska and her Little Sister Alisia; Big Brother Reuben Yost; Heather Beaudette; Vice-President of Programs Marc Wheeler; and local board president Cody Bennett.
Thanks to our technician, Colin Osterhout, for his advice and service during the event, and to the staff and crew of Centennial Hall.
Finally, thank you to our new and renewing "Dream Big!" donors who are helping Big Brothers Big Sisters change children's lives and change the Juneau community.
