This year we have so much to celebrate! A new CEO, a new logo and exciting new strategies. As one of our awesome supporters, we would love for you to join us. This annual fundraiser will touch your heart and lift your spirits. A great way to start the day!

I am particularly excited about this year's speaker, Dr. Karen Gedney, author and former Big Sister. I hope you can carve a little time to share a meal and learn a bit more about Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada.


Dr. Karen Gedney

Dr. Gedney's 30 year career as a prison physician has given her a unique perspective on what it take to change individuals and institutions. Dr. G's insights promote awareness and compassion and inspire people to take action in their lives and in their community.
