2023 Gala Chairs: Pamela & William Hurley

Pamela and Will joined the Ice Ball Host Committee 9 years ago and have been involved in this signature event ever since. This year, they are thrilled to be the 2023 Ice Ball Gala Chairs, something they see as the perfect way to celebrate their 10th year supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas. In addition to their involvement with the Ice Ball, Pamela and Will have been generous BBBS donors, Pamela is a member of the agency’s Executive Board, and she recently became a Big Sister for the first time and absolutely loves the experience. Together, Pamela and Will are focused on making a difference… for the gala, for BBBS, and for children and families in our community.

ABOUT BBBS

At Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas, we’ve been impacting the lives of children for more than 50 years by pairing children ages 6 and above 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 Sister to go places with and have fun. She would be my best friend and I wouldn’t be lonely.”

“I want someone to be my friend. Someone I can talk to and who 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.
