Delaware Today chooses Big Brothers Big Sisters as a Best of Delaware beneficiary!
The Best of Delaware Party will be held at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino in Dover on July 21, 2016. Don’t miss out on one of the most popular events in the First State, drawing more than 2,000 guests each year! From dining to services and retail, the party celebrates the best that Delaware has to offer. The Best of Delaware Party also raises funds for worthy, local causes. Money is raised through ticket sales, sponsorship and a silent auction held the night of the party, featuring items donated by many of the participants. Proceeds from the party have provided more than $1 million in donations to Delaware charitable organizations to date.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is honored and grateful to be one of the 2016 beneficiaries.
“Tonight I had the distinct honor of attending the graduation of Javier at University of Delaware’s Bob Carpenter Center. I first met Javier in February 2006 when he was a 3rd grader and was selected to be my “little brother” [I can no longer call him that as you can see from the pic] through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Delaware. I am so happy to see him graduate today from Howard High School — and continue his education at Delaware State University in the fall — although I must say the moment is bittersweet as his graduation officially marks the end of my 9-year highly rewarding experience as a member of Big Brothers Big Sisters. I will miss meeting with Big Brothers Big Sisters’ highly talented and hardworking staff, particularly Tiyona McCollister, who consistently came up with fun and creative activities for us to participate in. I would be remiss not to use this opportunity to acknowledge and thank Dan Gigler who was the first person to encourage me to join this outstanding nonprofit. Above all, congratulations Javier!”
