Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washtenaw County is holding its annual Fall Evening fundraiser on Sunday, September 10, 2017. The event, kindly hosted by Drs. Louis Probst and Kate Klein at their home in the Barton Hills section of Ann Arbor, begins at 5:00 P.M. and ends at 8:00 P.M. Benefactor ticket holders will enjoy a wine tasting with Doug and Bev Cass of Cass Vineyard and Winery, Paso Robles, CA, beginning at 4:00 P.M.

The best and brightest of the Washtenaw County community will gather for a casually elegant evening to raise critical awareness and funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters to continue its life-changing work of matching and supporting Big Brothers and Sisters with Littles looking for a positive mentor.

Highlights of the evening will include hors d’oeuvres and dessert by A Moveable Feast, cocktails and bourbon selections by The Last Word, remarkable entertainment by guitarist Hal Davis, inspiring words from Betsy McCallister, former Big Sister, and a fabulous live auction of a select number of exceptional items and experiences, including a highly coveted, 20-year-old bottle of Pappy Van Winkle bourbon!

The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washtenaw County is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. The vision of BBBS is that all children achieve success in life.
