Beach Bash Thursday benefits Big Brothers Big Sisters

April 26. Year 13 of Big Day at the Lake officially gets under way tomorrow with a Beach Bash at Port City Club in Cornelius. The fundraiser starts at 5:30 p.m. at Port City Club on Harborside Drive in Cornelius. The cost to attend is $5. Proceeds benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Charlotte. There will be a live and silent auction, shag music and a DJ, as well as a special menu.

Big Day at the Lake puts at-risk youngsters from Big Brothers Big Sisters, along with their mentors, out on Lake Norman and Mountain Island Lake for a day of fun each year. This year’s event will be held on Saturday July 22.

Big Day at the Lake has three goals: Provide a day of fun for kids who would not otherwise experience Lake Norman or Mountain Island Lake, recruit mentors and raise money for a worthy non-profit that focuses exclusively on at-risk children.

This year’s fund-raising goal is $100,000. PayPal and Champion Tire are Presenting Sponsors this year, along with dozens of companies and individuals.

Big Day at the Lake is responsible for raising over $700,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters since its inception in 2003.

There is a $5 donation at the door. Big Day at the Lake updates can be found online: Big Day at the Lake on Facebook or at
