2022 Big Night Gala: Bigger Together

After two years of virtual galas, we were so excited to be back in-person at Quincy Hall to celebrate supporters like you who make our mission possible. From the absolutely amazing attendance to the record-breaking Support-A-Match donations, we shattered our fundraising goal for the evening by raising over $400,000! Your generosity enables Big Brothers Big Sisters Twin Cities to amplify the power and potential of nearly 4,000 Twin Cities youth.

We’re still buzzing with joy and delight from the evening’s highlights – hearing Pat and Derrick’s touching match story, meeting our matches Danielle & Dejhia and Jorge & Josué in our Mission Moment video, and dancing the night away with dueling pianos at our new Big Night: Late Night after party. What a joyous occasion to celebrate the power of youth mentoring. 

On behalf of the BBBS Board, CEO Pat Sukhum, the Big Night Committee, and the entire BBBS family, we’re sending a BIG thank you to everyone that helped make this our biggest Big Night yet. Check out a few of these captured moments below, and view the full gallery from our photographer!

Together, the future looks even BIGGER.

Our vision is that every Twin Cities child who needs a mentor has a mentor. BBBS is rebuilding our community through the power of youth mentoring because when young people thrive, we all thrive. Your participation in our annual gala brings us closer to making this dream a reality!

Stay tuned for the date of our 2023 Big Night Gala!
