Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cumberland & Salem Counties (BBBS) is now taking reservations for their annual Rise & Shine Breakfast, which is scheduled for Giving Tuesday, December 3, at The Grove at Centerton located at 1022 Almond Road in Pittsgrove. The event begins at 7:30 am with a mix and mingle, with the full program starting at 8:00 am. Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many individuals and businesses focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving to charitable causes.
According to BBBS Director of Development Melody Montgomery, “The one-hour program will include breakfast and a range of speakers who will testify to the positive impact one-to-one mentoring has had on their lives. It is an opportunity to strengthen current relationships and build new ones throughout the community in support of the BBBS new mission and vision.”
This event is a fundraiser, so guests are encouraged to make a contribution. However, there is no minimum and no maximum gift requested. “As the event is taking place on Giving Tuesday, we hope attendees will be inspired to donate, but it is not required,” Montgomery said. “By investing in putting a mentor in the life of a child, you are helping them grow socially, emotionally, and academically. If you are unable to contribute financially, you will definitely leave with new information about the program and maybe a desire to participate as a mentor or volunteer yourself.”
Although the event is free, the deadline to RSVP is November 26 as space is limited. To reserve a seat or to get more information, please contact Melody Montgomery at 856-692-0916, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also register online at www.RiseAndShineBreakfast.com.
