Now in its 55th year, Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County (BBBS) has served tens of thousands of youth through its much-loved and highly successful mentoring programs. At Marsh & McLennan Agency, many of our colleagues are actively involved in the organization, with many participating in the Beyond School Walls program. Through Beyond School Walls, our colleagues are paired with youth for one-on-one mentoring in the professional workspace. We are honored to support such an incredible organization which helps change the lives of children in our community.
We are also proud to share that this year Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County will be honoring MMA Principal and incoming BBBS Chairman Bill Brennan as its Person of the Year.
MMA West Region CEO Paul Hering, who is also being honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award this year, originally introduced Bill to Big Brothers Big Sisters at its Annual Gourmet Dinner. Inspired by their mission, Bill became a Big Brother in 2000. He joined the board several years later and has since served in many roles on nearly all of BBBS’ committees. As the incoming board chairman, Bill is eager to further the mission of mentoring children by focusing on BBBS’ great programs serving the San Diego area.
The 55th Annual Gourmet Dinner will take place on October 12 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine. The Annual Gourmet Dinner is BBBS’ largest fundraiser of the year, raising more than $700,000 for the organization’s mentoring programs.
