Big Brothers Regina raised an unprecedented $60,000 at their fundraising dinner where Frank O’Dea was the keynote speaker.
October 14th, 2016

Big Brothers Regina raised an unprecedented $60,000 at their fundraising dinner where Frank O’Dea was the keynote speaker.  

When asked about the success of the event, Ash Noureldin, the Executive Director, responded, “To be straight up, Frank far exceeded my expectations. From a fundraising vantage point, the goal was 60K, and we just crossed that threshold, so I am very pleased.

From a messaging vantage point, I knew it would be powerful, but in the same breath I wasn’t expecting it to be as impactful as it ended up being. He had the attention of the room the moment he started speaking and by the time he was finished, the energy in the room was amazing, and many even commented that it wasn’t fitting for the night to just be over…  I think he got people really motivated… myself included.”

Big Brothers believe that by changing the course of young lives, we can, in turn, be changing the course of our community’s future. That it could lead to a reduction in poverty and unemployment, to safer schools and neighborhoods and a renewed optimism for economic and societal growth. That it could even result in a change on a significant scale. We believe that opening a child’s eyes to what is, opens their minds to what could be.
