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.


Note: BBBSLR will be closely monitoring coronavirus-related recommendations and guidelines from the CDC and local, state, and federal government. BBBSLR will follow all recommendations to keep our supporters safe and healthy. Your well-being is our top priority.

Agency Gala's and Affairs:

Celebration of Mentoring

In 2015 our agency celebrated it's 40th Anniversary. It was that year we began an affair to recognize and thank those who help make everything happen in our program. Without volunteers, sponsors, donors, board members, and staff we would not be able to make one-to-one mentoring possible. We would be able to change lives for the better, forever. So please join us as we celebrate and thank those who make a difference. 

Save the Date... Fall 2020 we will celebrate for our 6th Annual affair at Antonelli Event Center in Irwin, Pa.



CONCERTS

 Since 2001, BBBSLR has been hosting concerts in Westmoreland and Fayette Counties.  The Clarks, The Fabulous Hubcaps, , and other agency friends have entertained packed crowds at both the Palace Theatre in Greensburg and the State Theatre in Uniontown.

Every child deserves a future.

Next door there is a child alone and full of self-self doubt, but you can fill that void. Will you help?

Right now there is a child who doesn't have anyone to stand up for them and their future is bleak. They don't realize they have potential. They have no one to be their voice, to be a friend, to listen and give them hope.

You can change that right now.

By donating your time, your resources, or your monetary gifts, you can join others like you and change a child's life NOW. 

They need you.

Don't wait. A child't future depends on it.
