Great times for a great cause

Enjoy a magical evening featuring luxurious dining, live entertainment, fabulous live and silent auctions, and so much more!

Big Brothers Big Sisters invites you to an unforgettable evening at the Big Black Tie Ball on Saturday, November 1, 2014 at the Omni Dallas Hotel.  The gala will include a cocktail reception, seated dinner, live entertainment, as well as a silent and live auction. 

The funds raised will directly impact the children in our community through our Amachi program – a mentoring initiative for children with an incarcerated family member. Statistics show that 70% of the children of prisoners will follow their parents’ footsteps into prison without intervention. Big Brothers Big Sisters breaks that cycle by putting a mentor in that child’s life to show them another path in life. Last year’s event hosted by Honorary Chair T. Boone Pickens, featured Trace Adkins and included over 650 guests while raising $439,000 for mentoring initiatives in North Texas.
