Kids First. Party Later.
Every year, over a thousand people come together at Big Night to raise much-needed funds for the kids at Big Brothers Big Sisters at the Big Night Celebration. While we are disappointed not to gather in person this year, the kids must remain our priority. And when we can safely celebrate again, we will - which is why we are launching Kids First. Party Later: the campaign for Big Night 2022!

Funds raised through Big Night are more crucial than ever to grow our service and meet the rising need in our community, particularly in young men.

During the pandemic, thousands of children suffered traumatic disruption and isolation and will not simply get “back on track.” But, because of people like you, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Massachusetts will be able to answer the call and match these children with caring adult mentors who will provide the help, guidance, and consistency they need now and into the future.
