Take part in our local events
Each year Big Brothers Big Sisters of Decatur County hold numerous fundraising events throughout the county to raise awareness and funds needed for our great programs. This year stop reading about the events and join in on the fun! We hold our Bowl For Kid's Sake, many county restaurants hold a Dine For Kid's Sake where they donate a portion of the evening's proceeds to BBBS, or maybe take part in our 5K walk or run. Start now gathering friends or co-workers to begin forming teams. Maybe you just want to take a collection and make a generous donation? Lost of ideas? Give us a call and we can help you with ideas for your event!
