The Big Event! Through the Looking Glass: Detroit's Past, Present, and Future! 

The City of Detroit has a rich past full of historic moments, innovative change, mind-blowing entertainment, and community development. As Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Detroit celebrates 40 years of creating transformational mentoring relationships for youth throughout metro Detroit, we invite you to join as we explore Detroit through the decades at the 2014 Big Event! This year's theme being Through the Looking Glass: Detroit's Past, Present, and Future! Guests will experience the best of Detroit from 1974 to 2014, highlighting the significant role the City has played in the metropolitan area, and the world! Guests will witness this and more, all while supporting the continued development of our youth through the creation of positive mentoring relationships!

For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As a donor and volunteer-supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters creates meaningful relationships between adult volunteers ("Bigs") and children ("Littles"), ages 7 through 18. These positive, professionally-supported relationships have direct and lasting effects on the youth in our community.

By successfully partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers, corporate supporters and other leaders in our community, we are accountable for each child in our program achieving: higher aspirations, greater confidence, better relationships, avoidance of risky behaviors, and educational success.

Funds raised at The Big Event support our successful mentoring programs and initiatives serving youth throughout Metropolitan Detroit.
