Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Texas Panhandle’s vision is that all youth achieve their full potential. Our mission is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
Our commitment to the children of Amarillo and Canyon is stronger than ever. Mentoring relationships serve as critical links in the chain of outcomes for our children, resulting in better schools and healthier communities. In our 60 year history we have never charged a fee, so the support of donors, like you are vitally important.
On Thursday, September 9, 2021 we are hosting our annual Mentoring Matters Luncheon, and we are excited to announce our keynote speaker, Sheryl Swoopes.
Sheryl Denise Swoopes is regarded as one of the greatest female athletes of all time. She is often referred to as the “Female Michael Jordan”, and was inducted in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 2016. Swoopes was the first player signed to the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA), and with the introduction of the Nike Air Swoopes in 1995, Sheryl became the first female athlete to have a Nike Signature Shoe named after her. Sheryl is a 3-time Olympic Gold Medalist, 4-time WNBA Champion, and a NCAA National Champion. Joined Nike as part of the W.I.N Program in 2020. Current position is an APLM for Olympics-Events
The event will also include an outstanding story of how one of our Big/Little matches reunited after 40 years.
Lunch will be catered by United Supermarkets.
Proceeds from the event will directly empower the lives of children ONE CHILD AT A TIME.
