Thanks to Big Brothers Big Sisters Executive Director Erin Davison and Melissa Butter for rolling out the red carpet for us Tuesday night at Rikenjaks. We had a great time and got to mingle with some of the Bigs and Littles last night.

The event was needed and really insightful for those looking to mentor some great young adults here in Lake Charles. I would have loved to have something like that when I was coming up. It feels great to have someone who is invested in you and wants to introduce you to new things that are fun for you to enjoy.

If you are interested in becoming a Big, you should reach out to Big Brothers Big Sisters to get all of the details on what to do next. I am sure there will be more great events to come featuring the organization. As a matter of fact, I am working to move things around so maybe I can become a Big myself.
