Big Brothers Big Sisters raises big bucks

 

November 9, 2017



Big Brothers Big Sisters of Haines wants to thank the Haines Community for showing up and helping out with the annual Dream Big Dinner to support BBBS in the Chilkat Valley. Thanks to all you helpers, eaters, bidders, donors and cleaner uppers we raised over $4000. A special thanks to Genevieve Bell, Jasmine Taylor and Willow Bryant for helping to prepare the scrumptious lasagna. Olerud’s, Four Winds Farms and Josie’s Bread and Bagels donated a lot of the foodstuffs. Candice Mustard-Scott set up and supervised off-the-hook kids’ games in the hallway, with help from Reuben Loewen. Kathy Binkie and Suzanne Vuillet-Smith helped me to prepare and serve dinner for over 80 guests and Leslie Evenden and Patty Brown pitched in with the clean-up. Gene and Debi Kennedy did a bang-up job with the dessert auction. The desserts donated were outrageous, some serious baking talent came out to play, thank you bakers. (Some of my favorites were desserts made by Bigs and Littles working together.) More important than the money raised, is how we came together to support each other with generosity and kindness. If you wanted to make a donation but didn’t make it to the dinner, it is not too late... Send checks to BBBS PO Box 1481 or donate online at http://www.bbbsak.org/donate. Our vision is that all children achieve success in life, thank you for being part of it!
