Man UP Success! 

On February 4th, we held our first Man UP recruitment night at the Ore Dock. A number of prospective Big Brothers came out to get all their questions answered about what being a Big Brother is all about, while enjoying live music and pizza. The Man UP Campaign has been extremely successful so far, but we’re not done yet.  

If you were unable to join us at our recruitment night, but would still like some information about becoming a Big Brother, you can call Laura or Liz at 475-7801.  

Thank you to Mike Letts & The Marquettes for great live music, Aubree’s Pizza for their donation of delicious pizza, and the Ore Dock for a great night. Most importantly, thank you to all the of prospective Big Brothers that took the step in strengthening our youth right in our own community!
