LCG Advisors participated for the second year in the Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids’ Sake and for the first time in the Over the Edge event. LCG Employees raised enough money to match one adult volunteer and child!
The Over the Edge event helps to increase awareness in the community about Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay. This year $80,000 was raised, matching 64 kids to a mentor! Brian Smith, LCG’s Managing Partner, rappelled 19 stories of the Priatek Building in downtown St. Petersburg to show his support.
As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (‘Bigs’) and children (‘Littles’), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. They develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people. Professionally trained Big Brothers Big Sisters staff members work with their partners in the education and juvenile justice communities to find children facing adversity and assess how our programs can have the greatest impact.
LCG is proud to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay. For more information on the organization please visit their website.
