Celebrate ‘Mentoring Works’ at 20th Anniversary Gala
The theme of this year’s Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ocean County gala on Saturday, March 25, from 6 to 11 p.m. at Eagle Ridge Golf Club in Lakewood, is “Mentoring Works.” Tickets are $150 apiece, to benefit the organization’s work in providing life-changing programs to over 500 children throughout Ocean County.
Through one-to-one mentoring, BBBSOC has a significant impact on participants by building a foundation for the future of the kids and the community.
Cocktail and hors d’oeuvres begin at 6 p.m., followed by dinner and awards at 7. The event includes open bar, silent auction, 50/50 raffle and live music by Kindred Spirits.
“This year’s honorees have demonstrated sincere dedication and commitment to our agency and to the children that we serve helping us to change children’s lives for the better, forever,” CEO Sue Sedivec said. “This is a very special year for us at BBBSOC, as we are celebrating our 20th anniversary – 20 years of serving the children in Ocean County.”
Among the awards that will be handed out, BBBSOC will also recognize the agency’s Big Brother and Big Sister of the year for their outstanding commitment to their Littles and for their support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ocean County.
