A "Big" weekend

The weekend is quickly approaching, and I know all of you are already thinking about what’s going on in town. Well, I’ve got an idea for you.

From 6:30-9 p.m. on Saturday, June 13, Tulsa’s Young Professionals and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oklahoma are joining together for an evening at a Tulsa Talons arena football game at the BOK Center.

TYPros and BBBSOK invite TYPros members to be a “Big for a Day” where they will accompany a group of children on a wait list for a Big Brother or Big Sister. Not only is it a great opportunity to get involved in the community, but it’s also an up close and personal introduction into the BBBS program.

Kids range in age from 6 to 16 and Bigs serve as role models in the program while helping them with their schoolwork and self-esteem.

Tickets to the game are free for those who participate and interested members can contact Jennifer Ashbaugh with BBBS at jennifer.ashbaugh@bbbsok.org.
