Big Brothers Big Sisters Lone Star is teaming up once again with KPRC Local 2 Anchor Rachel McNeill for our 2011 Rachel McNeill’s “Fore” the Kids’ Sake Golf Classic. This year, the Golf Classic will be held on Tuesday, September 20, 2011 at Wildcat Golf Club, the Official Course for Houston’s Sports Franchises.
We invite you to join us to help make an impact on the children in our community by sponsoring or participating in the Golf Classic this year. The BBBS mentoring model of sustainable, one-to-one mentoring relationships is proven to help children reach their full potential. Public/Private Ventures (P/PV), a renowned national research organization, completed an independent study on the Big Brothers Big Sisters model. “Making a Difference: an Impact Study of Big Brothers Big Sisters” revealed that, 18 months after being matched, our mentees were:
An additional Texas-based study showed that 87% of 1,200 surveyed youths who were mentored in the BBBS program graduated high school. This is compared to Houston’s published graduation rates of less than 50%. This research tells a powerful message – MENTORING WORKS!
This is why we encourage you to support Big Brothers Big Sisters by participating in the 2011 Rachel McNeill’s “Fore” the Kids’ Sake Golf Classic. You can make a difference by allowing children in our community to have a Big Brother or Big Sister!
Sponsorships range from $350 Hole Sponsors to the $20,000 Title Sponsor, and individual golfers can join for $250. If you have any questions, you may contact Rosalind Moore at 713.860.8209 or email Rmoore@bbbstx.org.
