This donation represents income from Big Splash, which ran from April 29 to May 24, 2012. The waterpark resort donated tickets, and contributed 100% of the proceeds to BBBSGC.

Increased funding will allow BBBSGC to carefully make more mentoring matches and provide ongoing support to the volunteers, mentees and their families to help sustain the long-term, successful relationships unique to the organization.
Great Wolf Lodge Concord has donated over $250,000 in financial and in-kind support to BBBSGC since 2009.
