It was Nelson Dentistry’s privilege to sponsor and compete in Big Brothers Big Sisters of Missoula’s annual Golf Classic earlier this month. It was a day full of sun, fun, and healthy competition. Although…..we choose not to mention which place we finished in!
Nelson Dentistry was proud to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Missoula because the work they do is vital to the future of the community. The Golf Classic is one of BBBS’s major annual fundraisers. Over the past 18 years, the BBBS Golf Classic has raised more than $360,000. All of these funds have stayed in Missoula and benefited local children.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Missoula provides adult mentors to local children. Research shows that one-to-one mentoring programs have real outcomes for children. They help kids achieve success in school, help them avoid risky behaviors such as getting into fights and trying drugs and alcohol, and help them improve their self-confidence.
Big Brother Big Sister of Missoula is currently in need of BIGS for the LITTLES enrolled in their program. BBBS matches BIGS with LITTLES based on similar interests and hobbies. Becoming a BIG requires a year-long commitment. During the year, you’ll get to meet with your LITTLE once a week for some quality fun time. Prospective Big Brothers and Big Sisters say they would like to give something back, yet most end up saying, “I get so much more than I give.” One Big Sister said that, “It is the most rewarding thing I have ever done.” If you are interested in becoming a BIG, call or stop by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Missoula on the corner of Russell and Mount. They would LOVE to have you!
