Big Brother, Big Sister named STAR Award winners
We were thrilled to see Bob Gazi and Tiffany Overbeek awarded the Family Volunteer Group STAR Award. Bob and Tiffany have each had a Little since 2007 (right before they were married) and host the very popular annual Halloween party for matches. Bob and Tiffany are very deserving of this honor for all they have done – and continue to do – for their Littles and for all of our matches. Congratulations!
Jim Caldwell, coach of the Detroit Lions, to speak at Benefit Dinner
Big Brothers Big Sisters, A Community of Caring is excited to announce plans for the 37th Annual Benefit Dinner. The June 5, 2014 event at the Radisson Plaza Hotel & Suites in Kalamazoo will feature guest speaker Jim Caldwell, the new head coach of the Detroit Lions.
A Big commitment: Couple becomes mentors just before wedding, each with their own Little
Back in 2007 when Tiffany Overbeek and Bob Gazi were engaged, they discussed ways they might give back to the community. They decided to become Bigs, each with their own Little. Since then, they have spent several hours each month with their respective Littles and long ago surpassed the one-year commitment asked of Bigs.
Every Bowl for Kids’ Sake event has its own personality: some are full of hoots and hollers while others are more low-key and family oriented. When the members of the Greater Kalamazoo Association of Realtors (GKAR) get together for their bowling shift, they are definitely hooting and hollering.
Your generosity, support helps local children achieve success
Thanks to your generosity and support, we are proud to report that 2013 was a tremendous year for kids in the five counties we serve. Without your support, we would not be able to achieve positive outcomes for our children.
