Our BIG Move
As of Monday, we have a new home! Our headquarters moved from downtown to 750 West Hampden Avenue, Suite 450 in Englewood. The move adds nearly 1,000 square-feet of additional space while saving us more than $60,000 in rent annually. The new space offers a location that is close proximity to several BBBSC programs, and the cost savings will enable BBBSC to hire additional staff and expand the number of at-risk youth we are able to serve here in Colorado.

Please join us at our Open House on December 1st for the unveiling of our new space and  artwork display from our very own Littles who are in the program. Please RSVP to Kevin at  KevinZ@biglittlecolorado.org
Fall Fest
The 3rd Annual Team Big Fall Fest, sponsored by ReadyTalk, was held at Chatfield Farms. Matches carved pumpkins, jumped on the jumping pillow, took hay rides, hopped aboard the "barrel train", and enjoyed fun Halloween games and treats. As it got dark they had private access to the corn maze, where Matches braved their way through with only the light of a glow stick. See photos here. Thank you to Sprouts Farmers Market for donating pumpkins and Grampa Bardeen's Pumpkin Carving Sets for donating the pumpkin carving tools.
