Please join us for a fun-filled evening to learn more about the Big Hope Program and our amazing partnership with Ponder Elementary and Big Brother's Big Sisters. Join us Friday, July 12th from 4-6pm in the Loft! There will be guest speakers, current mentors and kids, Big Hope alumni, refreshments and lots of information about how you can become a mentor.
