On Thursday, November 3rd, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona presented our new office building to the public at the Big Reveal. This exciting event was the culmination of many years of planning, countless volunteer hours, and lots of generous community partners. Close to 100 guests were present to enjoy music by Richie Darling, amazing party platters donated by Shamrock Foods, and champagne donated by Strunk Insurance. Attendees were also treated to raffle prizes and the chance to win BBBSAZ swag. Several Bigs and Littles were present to give tours of the building, talk to guests about their experiences together, and encourage others to sign up to be mentors. Be sure to check out all of the amazing photos from the event here!
During the event, we were able to showcase and dedicate the Thunderbirds Charities Community Room, the Cox Innovation Lab, and the Devin Booker Pavilion. The Thunderbirds Charities Community Room is a huge indoor space that will be used for mentor and parent/guardian training, match activities, fundraising events, and more. The new Cox Innovation Lounge includes incredible technology such as laptops, virtual reality sets, a Cricut, and even a 3D printer that matches can utilize. The Devin Booker Pavillion is an amazing outdoor space that allows matches to play basketball, ping pong, cornhole, and more. Paul Horton of AZ Family was also able to come by and check out the newly minted Paul Horton Collaboration Station. Check out a video of Paul seeing his newly dedicated space, and a quick tour of the space and the rest of the event here!
BBBSAZ would like to say thank you so much to everyone who attended the Big Reveal and made this day so special. We are so excited to continue to share this space with our matches and our community!
