Big For A Day

Join Big Brothers Big Sisters, changing lives in Southwest Virginia

Announcing our 2018 Bigs for the Day participants.

Big For A Day on January 25, 2018.

January is National Mentoring Month and, at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Virginia, we celebrate with an event called Big For A Day where a child on our waiting list is matched with a community leader in their workplace for the day. Listed below are our 2018 Roanoke Big For A Day leaders. 

Ben Motley – Director of Roanoke Design Studio, RRMM Architects.

Jaimie León – Vice Present and General Manager of WSLS, the NBC affiliate.

Tom Foster – Chief of Police, Town of Vinton.

David Hoback – Chief of Roanoke City Fire Department.

A child between the ages of 9-12 will have the privilege of spending two hours in January, National Mentoring Month, with a prominent community leader in Roanoke. These leaders will have the opportunity to experience mentoring with a Little when they share professional time at work. For more info about Big For A Day, contact June House at (540)798-0812 or
