"Fund raising events are what our organization relies on for funding. To keep our program here in St. Joe, to keep us matching kids with mentors. And even if we don't have a great turnout it still creates awareness," said BBBS Events Coordinator Melissa Honeycutt.
Big Brothers Big Sisters hopes to spark an interest within the community and recruit some volunteers with the fundraising event. They serve over 100 kids each year and currently have a waiting list of over 40 kids. Funds will help take the kids on the waiting list and match them with a big brother, big sister, or big couple.
