It's been a minute since we dropped by Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Lakeshore to see what's going on.  As usual, they are working to provide a place for kids who need a little guidance in their lives a contact that can help bridge the gap that might be missing in their day to day.  A companion who can show them the ropes, offer some stability and maybe a little help when things seem a little too much to handle.  It's not an expensive endeavor, it's not a commitment of more than some time and life experience and the rewards will follow you throughout a lifetime.

Making it all come together however does take a little effort and in the Muskegon and surrounding areas, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Lakeshore is the organization who's been doing this for years.  Golf for Kids Sake is one of the ways they work to try and help fund the "behind the scenes" stuff and Cloey Jo Buzell joins me to talk about this years event. 


From the Big Brothers Big Sisters national website - "Since 1904, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is incredible potential. As the nation’s largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 5 through young adulthood in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people."  It's a proven program that is rewarding for participants on both ends.  Where some single parent families might need a little help with support of a male or female role model for kids, those role models find in short order that what they have to give by way of time and talent is far more than can be bought.  It's a coming together of those who might otherwise never meet and the depth and scope of the relationship will last a life time.

At the golf outing, you know what to expect.  Plenty of fun, food, engagement and education.  $25,000 bucks for a hole in 1?  That's an attention grabber!  You'll be able to buy a few mulligans, play some games at the holes and enjoy the spectacular views at Grandview.  You can CLICK HERE to get yourself or your team registered and you can also use the link below to get in on the fun.
