Thank you to everyone who supported the 2021 Big 3 Fishing Tournament!

The incredible support and generosity displayed for the 8th annual BIG 3 Fishing Tournament demonstrated the commitment our community has to change the lives of all children for the better. We are thrilled to announce that the BIG 3 raised more than $500,000, our most successful yet, to defend the potential of youth and keep our program thriving across Cape Cod & the Islands.

We cannot celebrate this remarkable accomplishment without recognizing the tremendous generosity from our donors, sponsors, friends, and volunteers. Despite not being able to officially host the fishing tournament due to Tropical Storm Elsa, we survived and thrived together, and our collective success is what we celebrate today. Thank you for standing by us and supporting us through all the challenges and triumphs.

We hope you’ll join us next year for the 9th annual BIG 3 Tournament!

How much did we raise last year?

In lieu of last year’s Big 3 Fishing Tournament, the BIG 3 Challenge was initiated to lessen the impact of COVID-19 on our mission and continue to serve as many kids on the Cape and Islands as possible. We fortunately raised nearly $200,000 thanks to all of our BIG 3 Challenge participants and donors! We are so grateful fort their incredible support and for sticking with us as we navigated through the challenges of the pandemic. The BIG 3 contributes to nearly 40% of the agency’s annual operating budget and with your help, we can raise much needed funds to continue our mission! Check out photos from 2019.

In 1974 an informal group of volunteers began serving as mentors to six disadvantaged youth on Cape Cod. Soon after, the group was formally organized as Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cape Cod & the Islands. The program was founded due to the large population of at-risk children- particularly those living in single-parent homes on Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard.

In 2006, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cape Cod & the Islands merged with Boston-based Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Massachusetts (formally of Massachusetts Bay) to improve organizational sustainability and increase capacity to serve children. Based in Hyannis, MA we are currently the only one-to-one youth mentoring agency on Cape Cod.
