Many Thanks

by Shari Davis-Schoech on 2014-12-11

I just wanted to say thank you to all of you that participated by donating a gift to a child in the foster care system (FAKS Christmas Party). The event was amazing. One-hundred sixty children received a present from Santa and the people at Cornerstone Church in Brighton were wonderful. I wish I could show you some of the faces of the children we helped- beyond words. Thank you for your part in making some children very happy this year.
Have a very blessed Christmas.
Shari at Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Just a Holiday Reminder -

by Eileen Klein on 2014-12-03

FAKS (Foster Adoptive Kinship Support) is providing a nice Christmas party for children in the foster care system on December 10th. Big Brothers Big Sisters is helping out by asking our friends and family to donate a present for Santa to give each child at the party. Many of you participated last year and we were so grateful. Also, a BIG thanks to Kelly and Roger for supporting us asking our building friends to help again this year.
We have a little glass Snowman at the front desk which holds labels we have prepared with the gift request from the child on them. There are gift ideas on the labels for the child. We are asking that you spend around $20.00 on each child, we do not want you to buy all 2 or 3 gift suggestions. The suggestions come from a child's wish list to Santa. There is also a master list and Eileen and Doris are our Elves helping keep track of who took whose name. (If they are not at the desk and you take a name, simply write your name next to the child's on the master list which stays with the Snowman.)
We would like the gift wrapped and the label put on the gift brought to the Mansion by December 8th. This gives us time to make Santa's list and check it twice before the party.
Thank you in advance,
Please open up your heart for the Foster Kids....... Thanks ...Big Brothers Big Sisters

Evening For Our Stars

by Shari Davis-Schoech on 2014-09-12

On October 3, from 7-11 pm, Big Brothers Big Sisters will be hosting our Reception and Silent Auction at Oak Pointe Country Club. We come together to celebrate mentoring and our wonderful volunteers. The auction helps us raise much needed funds to continue our goal of helping more children become confident, competent, caring adults.
Tickets are pre-paid so we have the right count and enough fabulous food for everyone, $40 per person or $75.00 per couple. No one goes away hungry or thirsty (cash bar). Livingston County businesses are so generous, we have many wonderful auction items; airline tickets, jewelry, gift cards, etc. There are fun raffles also. Maybe you will be the lucky one to win a smart TV with Home Theater system. Take your chance on a bottle of wine, will you get 2 buck chuck or something special worth $100! If you would like to make a donation to advertise your business, we would love it! Consider our event for a Christmas shopping opportunity as you make a real positive difference in a child's life. Call our office (517-546-1140) or stop by for your tickets. Check us out on Facebook, we post our auction items as they are donated. If you have any questions, give us a call and thank you in advance. I hope to see you there.
In sincere appreciation to work in such a beautiful environment, surrounded by such great people.

Jeans Day Fundraiser-next Friday, 9/12/14

by Rebecca Dukes on 2014-09-04

Good afternoon everyone,
As in years past, I am emailing regarding the now-annual McPherson Mansion "jeans day" fundraiser event. It will be held next Friday, September 12, 2014 for the non-profit corporation, Association for Child Development (ACD).

ACD is a sponsor of the Child and Adult Care Food Program and administers the program for more than 50,000 children enrolled in its sponsorship. The federal program funds only cover the meals and a portion of the supervision, field operations, and administration costs for this amazing organization, though, and it is up to the organization and its board of directors, of whom I am a member, to raise funds to continue operating each year.

As you may know, September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness month. The goal of the observance is to build awareness of the seriousness of childhood obesity and to help motivate families, communities, and businesses through awareness events. Participation in these events shows that everyone can play a role in the prevention and impact of childhood obesity.

In conjunction with this month of awareness, ACD has organized a "dress down day" event throughout Michigan and Indiana where participants make a donation to ACD and wear casual dress (or jeans) on Friday, September 12, 2014. Myers & Myers has chosen to participate in this fun event and encourages you to do so too. On the day of the event, we will have a flyer or poster in the greeting area to inform our guests that a special event is occurring.

In exchange for wearing jeans or other casual attire this day, ACD requests that each participant make a donation of at least $5. I will be collecting the funds and remitting them to ACD along with an event recap and donation form. I recognize that there are many great organizations that need fundraising help these days (including those in our own building), so participation is voluntary. Additionally, while the decision-makers at Myers & Myers have approved this event for our firm, if you have a typical dress code, you should seek approval from the decision-maker at your organization in order to participate. If you are able to participate and support this great organization, please stop by my office (202 - right above the kitchen) on that day to make your donation and get your participation sticker. If you will not be able to participate on the selected day, feel free to choose another day in September and just stop by my office with your donation.

One very important outcome of this event is to develop partnerships among the diverse groups who impact children through nutrition. By working together we can begin to stop this epidemic in its tracks. I would love for you to join us in our efforts and participate in this jeans day event. Thank you in advance for your consideration and support.

Warm Regards,
Becky
