BBBS of Mid-Florida 2015 National Big of the Year Award

Every year, our agency has the opportunity to nominate a Big Brother or Big Sister of the Year. We wanted to use our bi-monthly spotlight to share our nomination for our Big of the Year, Derek. He has been matched with his Little Brother, Octavious, since May 2008. Derek will go on to compete at the state level. We are rooting for you, Derek!

“It has been an absolute joy serving as the Match Support Specialist to Derek and Octavious. I truly believe that this match represents the consistency, dedication, and collaboration that I aim for all of our matches to possess. Derek and Octavious are such an example, and it is an honor to get a chance to share how instrumental Derek has been in Octavious’ life since their match began almost seven years ago in May 2008.

Gator Basketball…Fantastic!

Natalie and Caitlin

We are extremely grateful for our friends over at the United Way for extending the opportunity for our Bigs and Littles to enjoy free tickets to Gator basketball games! Thanks to the United Way, we were able to have four matches attend the UF vs. Auburn game as well as the UF vs. Ole Miss game. For many of our Littles, this was an entirely new experience and we could not be more thankful! Here’s a photo from one of our matches, Natalie and Caitlin, from the UF vs. Ole Miss game earlier this month.
