BBBS: Big In The Bluegrass

Last month, the kNOw MORE crew visited the Grand Reserve in the heart of downtown Lexington’s Distillery District to take part in “Big in the Bluegrass.” Put on by Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass, the annual event helps raise money to support the foundation’s “match program,” which matches children and young adults with volunteer members of the community. This year’s annual fund-raising event featured local Kentucky Proud food, live auctions, cocktails, and live music by Lexington blues rockers The Tee Dee Young Band.

Currently, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass supports 310 matches, with costs averaging $1,000 per match; in addition, another 170 children are on a waiting list. The funds from the night were much needed. “It’s great and necessary to come out and support with money,” board member Seth Salomon told kNOw MORE at the event, before reflecting on other ways to contribute to the nonprofit’s work: “But the best thing people can do is be a ‘Big.’ It’s a big time commitment, but it’s a great thing and rewarding for both sides.” Check out our video for more on the fun—and fund-raising—night.
