Presently, Operation Bigs runs at five elementary schools on Camp Pendleton
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 1, 2009
Caleb Wickman of American Satellite is hosting an Independence Day Charity Event for Operation Bigs, an Initiative of Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County. According to Mr. Wickman, all proceeds will be going to Operation Bigs. Operation Bigs provides mentors to children of military families through Big Brothers Big Sisters' School-Based program, comments Wickman. "We are very pleased to be contributing and providing much needed funding for a program as important as this," states Wickman. "Basically, volunteers meet with children at their schools on base and provide quality one-to-one friendship time that is so important to a child whose parent has been deployed," added Wickman. "Presently, Operation Bigs runs at five elementary schools on Camp Pendleton," adds Wickman. "The new funding needed is for expansion to Silver Strand Elementary and Gateway Child and Youth Education Services in Point Loma," stated Wickman. Wickman also commented he would be thrilled to have the initiative expanded to serve his own community of Point Loma.
"Bigs and Littles meet for one hour sessions in the classroom, school library, school computer room, or on the school playground. Bigs and Littles typically meet once a week to read together, play sports or computer games, or simply talk about life and personal issues - just as friends do," added Caleb Wickman.
The event will be co-hosted by Caleb Wickman of American Satellite and Dish Network on Saturday, July 4th from 2pm-10pm at the 'Mission Bay Party House'; 3566 Bayside Walk San Diego, Ca 92109. Catering will be provided by Phil's BBQ. The party is open to the General Public. Tickets are $50 Pre-sale and $60 at the door and include catering and open-bar Live DJ's, Entertainment, beautiful people, beach volleyball, horseshoes, 360 degree views of all the Fireworks from the 3rd floor Party Deck, etc, etc!!! Wickman also added all proceeds will be going to Operation Bigs.
