The pandemic has canceled all big fundraising events, at least in person that is. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah is also going virtual for their annual Chef and Child event this year for "A Magical Night In".
BBBS provides one-to-one mentoring to kids who face increased risk factors throughout Utah. Mentoring shows proven outcomes such as improved school performance and improved mental health.
Nancy Bassinger, President and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah, tells us the pandemic has especially hard for the youth BBBSU serve so it's more important than ever to keep kids connected with caring and consistent adults.
"A Magical Night In" is going to be all the fun you know and love from Chef & Child with a virtual twist.
It's completely FREE to the public with opportunities to upgrade and support BBBSU with a VIP interactive basket featuring cocktail and mocktail mixers, themed playing cards to follow along during the event, and lots of delicious treats. Enjoy music and “Magical” entertainers and there will be a live online auction you can participate in to raise money for BBBSU!
Levi Smith with Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Utah is proud to be a board member of BBBSU and also tells us why his company supports Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah and many other non-profits in our community.
