Over 150 members of the Omaha/Council Bluffs community attended the Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Midlands Mentoring Magic Luncheon.
This annual fund-raising luncheon raised more than $28,000 to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Midlands.
Luncheon guests were greeted by Bigs and Littles at the Thompson Alumni Center on the campus of the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
Presenters during the luncheon included Board President Jackie White and CEO Nichole Turgeon, who shared her vision for the future of the agency.
The featured speaker was Patricia Davis, a single mother with four daughters who all have Big Sisters in the program. She shared how Big Brothers Big Sisters has made an impact on her family.
"When it comes to the Big Sisters, I couldn’t have asked for four better people to become role models for my girls. Mary, Lynette, Lindsay and Heather have become such a huge part of our family. I see the girls opening up and talking more – they have trusting friendships with their Bigs." said Davis.
