The money raised from the gala supports finding and matching volunteer mentors with local children. Currently, more than 300 children are ready to be matched with a mentor; over half of them are boys waiting for a Big Brother. The cost to find, interview, and match a volunteer with a child for a year is $1,000.
“Our donors help children reach their full potential,” said Marian Davenport, President and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Houston.
One-to-one mentoring has a big impact on children, helping equip them with the tools they need to succeed in life. “The funds we raise help us to create successful long-term relationships with positive outcomes” said Davenport.
The gala will honor BMC Software and its Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Robert E. Beauchamp, avid supporters of Big Brothers Big Sisters.
