Speaking at this event will be Heidi Huonder Nelson and Suzanne Schwichtenberg about how being involved and being "Bigs" has had an impact on them. Additionally, Pam Iorio, the President and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, will be present at this event.

According to, “Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (‘Bigs’) and children (‘Littles’), ages 4 through 14, in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.” The organization pairs children with same gender adults and right now, they are hoping to get more men involved.

All are welcome to attend this event and learn about the need for more “Bigs” in our community. For more information about the Big Cheese Society event, or Big Brothers Big Sisters, visit
