Big Brothers Big Sisters benefit dinner this month


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kalamazoo is working to spread the word about the need locally for mentors. Executive Director Amy Kuchta says just about anyone can be a Big Brother or Sister, telling us that you can be a mentor by simply incorporating the young person you're paired up with into your daily life.

She says men are needed right now, in particular. There are more than 200 boys on the waiting list in Kalamazoo for a Big Brother.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is also raising money this month with its annual benefit dinner, which is slated for June 17th. The guest speaker will be University of Michigan's men's basketball coach John Beilein, and they'll have awards and auctions. To find out about getting tickets, follow this link.
