Big Brothers Big Sisters celebrated the grand opening of their new facility.  The non-profit organization that helps young girls and boys through mentoring, outgrew their last building.

The organization has expanded and now they call home to a larger building on West Rudisill.

Josette Rider is the CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters here in Northeast Indiana who says, "So we've had a lot of growth.  We've grown so much that we needed a new building, but we really wanted to stay committed to the area that we're in on the South side and ambassador.  Our partnership there has made all that happen.  So it's been a busy 15 years, but it's been worth it.  Watching these kids graduate and go off to college and come back and many become bigs themselves."

The organization accepted a million dollar check for their growth from the Auer Foundation.  WFFT is a proud sponsor of Big Brothers Big Sisters.
