I have been a big brother for over 5 years and have not regretted one minute of it. While I have taken time to provide companionship and mentoring to a very special kid, I have gotten back more than I ever imagined. If you are ever interested in being a Big, please, take a few minutes to contact the Big Brothers Big Sister Organization in your area. They would be very happy to answer any questions and provide any information you may want to know about the program. Every year Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona puts together a picnic at Kiwanis Park in Tempe to thank all the bigs and their littles for their ongoing support. The event is attended by hundreds of Bigs and Littles from Central Arizona. Many volunteers work with the staff of BBBS of Central Arizona to make sure that Bigs and Littles have a great time. This year's event was no different. It was well attended. We had great weather, lots of fun games, great entertainment and delicious food.
