Big Brothers Big Sisters of Rockland County should like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who sponsored our Annual Bigs and Littles Holiday Party, which was held on Saturday, December 1st, at Dave & Busters Restaurant, Palisades Mall.
For many of the children in our program, this would be the only holiday party they would attend and we welcomed over 120 children and youth accompanied by their mentors, who enjoyed a fabulous lunch, followed by much fun in the arcade and presents from Santa.
At this time, therefore, on behalf of the Board of Directors for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Rockland County, I should so very much like to express sincere and heartfelt gratitude to the following people who sponsored the evening.
- Independent Insurance Agents of Rockland County (party sponsor)
- Capital One Bank (partial Gift Card sponsor)
- New City Rotary Club (partial Gift Card Sponsor)
- Faherty Law Firm (partial Gift Card Sponsor)
- Big Apple Fundraiser (Raffle Prize Donor)
- Target (Raffle Prize Donor)
Last, but certainly not least, to Dave & Buster’s Restaurant for their generous donation of the Hollywood Room and Power Cards. To Board Member, Lenny London who was fabulous in his role as Santa; and, of course, sincerest of thanks, to our loyal Board of Directors and my dedicated staff together with volunteers Maria and Sean, for their devotion and willingness to always go “that extra mile” in order to bring happiness, good memories and rich experiences in to the lives of “our kids.”
