  • Waiting Bay Area Boys Need You!
  • Our wait list continues to grow, with 800 boys in the Bay Area waiting to be matched with a Big Brother. This month, we’re highlighting one of those kids—Daniel, a 14-year-old from San Jose. This is his story.




  • BIG Gala Success!
  • Thanks to the generous support of our 2016 Annual Gala donors and sponsors, we raised over $475,000 – once again, breaking records for our signature event of the year!! Over 350 guests enjoyed an extremely energetic evening, filled with inspirational singing, high bidding and heart-warming stories of how Little Moments truly do result in Big Magic.
