Great Times For a Great Cause!

Special Events

In response to our own commitments to reach out to those children who want and need a mentor but have never had the opportunity, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Laurel Region continues to step up fundraising efforts to prevent any interruption in our goals for growth and expansion and our ability to provide these much-needed services at no-cost to families. All monies raised stay local and enable us to continue fulfilling our mission of providing premier mentoring services, thus improving the lives of children, their families, and our communities.
