A Message From Shannon & Dan Orefice
On March 5, Dan & I, along with friends and co-workers, will be participating in the 35th Annual Bowl For Kids' Sake Event to benefit the mentoring programs of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Monmouth & Middlesex Counties. Over the past 8 years, it has been a true privilege and an experience of a lifetime reporting to work each day with passionate staff and volunteers committed to directly impacting the children of our community. I am constantly blown away by our volunteer Bigs’ commitment and dedication, the heroic and selfless acts of the parents who seek help for their children, and of course the children themselves whose enthusiasm and eagerness to bond is overwhelmingly moving. I can’t thank you all enough for all of the support you have provided me over the years through attending our events, sponsoring me for fundraisers, referring volunteers or children, clothing drives, Holiday Giving, and spreading awareness! While the work that we do can be difficult and heartbreaking at times, there isn’t a day that goes by that I am not inspired by a story of an outing that a new match had, something a parent shared at their initial interview, or a simple line that a child said on the phone with their Case Manager about their time with their Big.
Below is a link to a video that I watched during a recent webinar on the effects of childhood trauma and ways to improve and reverse those effects overtime, even through adulthood.
I hope that you will consider sponsoring Dan & I in this great event that raises funds to directly serve more children in our community through 1:1 mentoring.

Thank you all for your continued support of the children of BBBS!
