Big Brothers Big Sisters "Get Their Feet Wet"

Posted by Winspire
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berrien & Cass Success Story

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berrien & Cass in Michigan (bbbsofbc.org) recently had a very successful fundraiser they almost didn't go through with due to staffing obstacles.

Winspire worked with the organization to get the event in order, discussing various "Bucket List" items they could use to boost revenue and increase the profile of the auction. They enjoyed the concept of "Bucket List" items so much, they decided to name their event the "Time of Your Life Bucket List Evening Auction", and included multiple unique experience packages from Winspire.

The event organizer, Kathryn S. Rossow, was thrilled by how the event turned out and had some kind words she wanted to share.

“I want to thank you especially for shepherding me through the process. Once I 'got my feet wet' it was smooth sailing from there onward. I plan to promote Winspire at our next state meeting of Big Brothers Big Sisters organizations. We so much appreciate your great support of the work we do here with children. Many thanks and I’m quite sure we’ll get involved with Winspire again next year."
