Supporters and Future Mentors Learn About What We Do at Beers & Bigs 

On Saturday, June 29, Big Brothers and Big Sisters shared their stories while we all enjoyed Bear's Smokehouse barbecue (thanks to Thrivent Financial), craft beer (thanks to New England Brewing) and a few games at the brewery in Woodbridge. Attendees were encouraged to participate in a trivia game about the work we do at BBBS and earning them raffle tickets for some great prizes.

Thanks to our loyal sponsors, golfers and prize donors, our 2019 New Haven Golf Tournament is adding up to be one of our best yet.


Service After Service Inc. has decided to introduce our Big Brothers and Big Sisters to the veterans and affiliates of their organization at Game Night II taking place April 27 in Ansonia. Service After Service is a nonprofit dedicated to redeploying veterans into the local community in order to continue doing good. Their affiliates serve their communities after serving their country.

Hundreds of our friends, families and sponsors came out to Nutmeg Bowl in Fairfield to support us. Thank you to all who did.

Four Town Leaders Recognize January as National Mentoring Month

Bright blue skies and a gentle breeze greeted more than 100 golfers who enjoyed 18 holes of golf June 11 at the New Haven Country Club. While raising money for the work of our agency, the golfers enjoyed lunch, cocktails, dinner and for the lucky (or should we say, talented) few – trophies! Check out the photo album for highlights of the day.

Friends, donors and sponsors came together on March 24 to raise funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of SWCT at the Nutmeg Bowl in Fairfield. The success of the day only added to the fun as kids and adults donned those attractive shoes and headed to their lanes. There were no perfect games, but lots of laughs, raffle prize winners, spares, strikes and only a few gutter balls!
