Big Brothers Big Sisters: 200 Latino matches & growing!

The Big Brothers Big Sisters Latino Advisory Council event Friday evening at The Local Vine in Belltown was a class act all the way--great people, tasty bites, a warm fireplace, and I personally enjoyed the nicest glass of Malbec ever. Saw a lot of familiar faces and it was great, also, to meet some new folks as well--most of them BBBS staff.

I was so excited to learn that, of the 1200 total matches of "Bigs" with "Littles," 200 of them are Latino pairings! Hispanic outreach is a relatively new but concerted effort for the local organization so it just goes to show what a driven group of professionals can do to get the word out and make things happen!

Visit their site and see what they're up to!
