Virtual Big in Boston Draws an Online Crowd and Investment in Girls

Posted 10/02/2020

On Wednesday, September 30, we held our first-ever virtual Big in Boston celebration! It was an honor to celebrate the impact of igniting girls’ passion and power to succeed with 600 members of our community! While we could not be together in-person, the feeling of the Big Sister community was palpable.

Guests felt inspired and left with a clear understanding of why girls, why Big Sister Boston, why now. Their investment helped us raise $762,000, including a challenge grant of $150,000, that directly supports our mentoring and enrichment programs for Greater Boston’s girls.

And, we’re not done. We need your help to continue making and supporting our one-to-one mentoring relationships, especially now as we combat the isolation our girls are facing.

You’ll hear from more than a few inspiring Boston women, including our emcee, Lisa Hughes, of WBZ-TV/CBS Boston and from Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, as they reinforce the critical importance of our work in the community. And, you’ll hear from our Little Sisters as they take the mic to interview our Believe in Girls honorees, Governor Charlie Baker and First Lady Lauren Baker, and from Little Sister Aiyana who shares her story of the difference a mentoring relationship with Big Sister Lindsay made in her life.
