Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. The mentoring program matches adult volunteers with kids who need positive role models who can help them reach their full potential. One in four kids say don't have an adult to to turn to when they needs someone and a Big Brother or Big Sister is a young person's ally through many life obstacles.

On Thursday, Nov. 14 Big Brothers Big Sisters hosts its annual fundraising breakfast at Music City Center. It's an invite-only affair in which table captains invite professional colleagues and associates, friends and relatives to attend to learn about Big Brothers Big Sisters and have the opportunity to invest in the program.
