Big Brothers Big Sisters announced their partnership with Create Promotions in which local Create Promotions events, including Winter WonderSLO Jiffy Lube Ice Rink and Bubblyfest By The Sea benefit the local charity.
Holly Holliday, owner of Create Promotions and Big Brothers Big Sisters Board member presented a check for $1,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters raised during Bubblyfest By The Sea.
“I feel extremely fortunate to be able to serve as a Big Brothers Big Sisters board member and give back to their amazing program through Create Promotion’s events” said Holly Holliday, owner of Create Promotions. “Winter WonderSLO Jiffy Lube Ice Rink was created with the Big Brothers Big Sisters in mind, as a place to bring joy to kids and families during the holiday season. I am proud to give back every year, and look forward to strengthening our partnership and giving in the coming years.”
“We are so pleased Holly has chosen to work with our organization and help local kids through the power of mentoring” said Anna Boyd-Bucy, the organization’s Executive Director. “We look forward to collaborating with Create on the Winter WonderSLO Ice Rink.”
For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent within every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. Most children they serve are in single-parent and low-income families or households where a parent is incarcerated. As a part of the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, they make meaningful, monitored friendships between adult volunteers and children. Funding provides for a system of ongoing evaluation and support that is proven by independent studies to help families by improving the odds that participating children will perform better in school, avoid violence and illegal activities, and have stronger relationships with their parents and others.
