ICE BALL 2020: A BIG Night In

Saturday, August 22nd

6:30 PM – 8:00 PM

Ice Ball 2020: A BIG Night In was a resounding success and an amazing night for our mission!

Our first-ever virtual gala exceeded our fundraising goal by more than $100,000, raising more than $700,000 to provide life-changing mentoring services for kids in our community, many of whom have been disproportionately impacted by the challenges of the COVID pandemic.

With viewers tuning in from across the country to take part in this unique, livestreamed event, we were excited and gratified to welcome the largest gala audience ever assembled in Ice Ball’s 16-year history.

And thanks to the exceptional generosity of our supporters, we look forward to continuing to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that can make a lifetime of difference for children in Central Texas.

It was truly an exceptional evening, and we thank you. Thank you for making a difference for children in our community.

If you did not have a chance to join us for Ice Ball, or if you would like to enjoy the event again, you can see the event broadcast HERE.

And, if you would like to make a gift in any amount, contributions are still being received HERE.

Big Brothers Big Sisters’ Ice VII Award

A force of nature. A quick-spreading impact. Such phrases describe Ice VII, a recently discovered type of ice which, under the right conditions, spreads so fast it could freeze an entire ocean within hours. A similar description applies to our Ice VII award recipients and the expansive reach and influence they’ve had during the last 10 years of the Ice Ball’s existence.

Carly and Clayton Christopher have rallied the city around BBBS and helped to generate the amazing excitement for Ice Ball that exists today. Over the years they have been corporate and in-kind sponsors, they have recruited friends to the gala, and they have also made personal donations and purchases.

It is our privilege to present Carly and Clayton Christopher with the Ice VII Award in honor of their significant contributions to Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Ice Ball Gala.

FUND A FRIENDSHIP

ABOUT BBBS

At Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas, we’ve been impacting the lives of children for more than 47 years by pairing children ages 6-16 with caring, adult mentors in Travis, Williamson and Hays counties. By supporting positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people, we work to strengthen each child’s ability to succeed and thrive in life.

 

FUND A FRIENDSHIP

It costs $1,250 to fund a life-changing mentoring relationship for a child for a year. There are still hundreds of children on our waiting list who are looking for the opportunity to be matched with a mentor of their own. Your Fund A Friendship gift provides kids like these with the one-to-one support they need to succeed in life.

WHY? HERE’S WHAT THE KIDS SAY:

“I want a Big Brother to go places with and have fun. He would be my best friend and I wouldn’t be lonely.”

“I want someone to be my friend. Someone I can talk to and can help me when I have problems.”

“I want to have a good life. I want a Big Sister to help me succeed.”

Your 100% tax-deductible Fund A Friendship gift can change a child’s life for the better, forever. Give now.
