Kyle O’Quinn’s “Beards for Bigs

May 5, 2014

ORLANDO -- In an effort to recruit more male mentors for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Florida, Kyle O’Quinn will have Jalen White, a “little” from Castle Creek Elementary, shave his beard.

Currently more than 70 percent of children waiting for “bigs” are boys. In an effort to change that, O’Quinn wants to raise awareness for the organization and is placing a call to action to all Central Floridians. All men who sign up to mentor from May through August will be O’Quinn’s special guest at a future Magic game and receive an on-court photo with O’Quinn.

Interested mentors are encouraged to come to the event at the BBBSCFL offices to get started. For more information on Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Florida please visit, http://www.bbbscfl.org/site/c.clKWIcOUIlJ6H/b.6368059/k.E238/Volunteer_to_start_something.htm
