In 1994 the course of my life changed forever. Big Brothers Big Sisters had managed to create the "perfect match". That’s when I met my "Big Brother" Rich, at the age of 10. We’ve done everything together. Everything any young boy would cherish and love to do with dad. We would go to Sonics games, Mariners games, we would play all types of sports together. Specifically basketball. He even coached my basketball team for a year. We’re both very competitive. You name it, we've made a competition out of it! We would go camping, do lunches, go see movies, batting cages, golfing, participate in every event BBBS offered, along with volunteer events...the list goes on and on.
We've had so much fun over the years. But it’s been much more than fun and games. I grew up with just my mom and my sister around. Mom was working two, sometimes three jobs, all while going to school, and still managing to get home to put dinner on the table for us kids. But she needed help. My dad wasn't around due to addiction and abuse, and I needed a male mentor to give me the guidance that my mom just wasn't sure how to give. And as strong of a woman as she is, and I've never met any stronger, she found the help in the most amazing organization I've ever had the pleasure in being a part of, Big Brothers Big Sisters. Rich has been above all, a role model. He has been the man I have looked to for all of those things most kids would go to their dad for. He's been the closest thing to a father figure I've ever had. He's shaped me from a 10 year old kid with no direction, to a man who wants to give back! And it’s all thanks to Big Brothers Big sisters!
Last year I created a weight loss fundraiser, and raised just over $1100! This year I’m organizing The 1st Annual Dream Builders Car Show to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Snohomish County, and to be held Sunday July 13th 2014 at the Evergreen Speedway in Monroe WA! This is where you come in! TO DO A CAR SHOW, I NEED CARS!!!I’m also looking for donations for raffles and prizes including but certainly not limited to: trophies, food & beverage, various services, signage, marketing, tickets to sporting events, auto parts, merchandise, apparel, local celebrity/athlete appearances, cah donations, and volunteers. Any and all donors will be recognized before, during, and after the event. Your donations are appreciated more than you could ever imagine. My life was changed forever by this organization, and with your help, we can ensure the same is done for many more kids like me! Please share this with anyone you know, especially if they're into cars! :)
