Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Illinois is thrilled to gather our community for our 6th Annual Big Impact Bash on September 11th at the Weingarten in Belleville.

Guests can expect a formal dinner, music, drinks, live auction and a program under the stars that will leave you feeling inspired to be a part of something Bigger. 

This is more than a fundraising event; it's a celebration of a community who kept our doors open and kept our Littles connected to their Bigs during one of the hardest years we have ever had!

Registration Deadline is August 10th.


Contingency Plan Statement

The 2021 Big Impact Bash Planning Committee has worked diligently to organize a safe and enjoyable event on September 11, 2021 at the Weingarten in Belleville. 

Guests can expect a well ventilated outdoor venue and safety precautions will be in place that follow all federal, state and local guidelines.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Illinois does not intend to cancel the Big Impact Bash unless circumstances outside of our control, such as a government mandated shutdown, takes place. 

In the event the Big Impact Bash must be cancelled, it is our intention to process all ticket sales as tax deductible donations and proceed with having the auction portion of the event online.
