In 2018, BBBSM’s annual golf tournament expanded to also include a tennis tournament. Held in December at one of the area’s finest private, member-owned country clubs, The Big Open is an exciting day of golf and tennis. Corporations and individuals alike participate in this full-day event, which includes premium player gifts, on-course/court hospitality, and a luncheon and awards ceremony.

The BIG Event Gala is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami’s largest fundraising event. Every March, more than 800 community leaders and philanthropists join together to support mentoring services and educational opportunities for the children and teens in our community, BBBSM volunteers, and families of Littles.

Guys Night Out

Guys Night Out is BBBSM’s annual gathering of the impactful men who invest their time and perspective to defend the potential of our community’s youth.

Programming Events

Children’s Holiday Party

BBBSM spreads the holiday cheer to our Bigs and Littles at the Children’s Holiday Party, held at Zoo Miami. One of the many great opportunities for Bigs and Littles to bond, this event includes entertainment for both Littles and Bigs, along with gifts distributed by Santa and his helpers.

A Big Night Out

Bigs are the heart of Big Brothers Big Sisters. Without Bigs, we cannot do what we do. So we kick off the New Year by honoring our Bigs as part of National Mentoring Month every January at the Carnival Center for Excellence. This event thanks our Bigs for their commitment to making a life-changing impact in the life of a child.

The most anticipated event of the year celebrates the success of our Littles as they graduate high school and transition into adulthood. Littles, Bigs, and families come out to congratulate them during a special Big Brothers Big Sisters graduation procession. Several Littles who are continuing onto higher education are also awarded with scholarships to help cover the cost of college. Graduates and their Bigs enjoy a post-graduation celebration hosted by the Big Brothers Big Sisters Alumni Association.
