Big Brothers Big Sisters and the NFL Inspire Change Foundation launch ‘The Big Draft’

Big Brothers Big Sisters Kansas City is teaming up with the NFL Inspire Change Foundation for “The Big Draft” to draft 300 new Bigs from January 1- April 20, 2020.

New Bigs that sign up during this timeframe will receive exclusive opportunities with the NFL Inspire Change Foundation and the Kansas City Chiefs.

“Draft day is often one of the most important days in the life of a pro football player,” said Micheal Lawrence, CEO of BBBSKC. “It’s a day when their new team says, “You’ve got what it takes,” and their lives are changed forever.”

In Kansas City, over 400 local kids — called ‘Little Brothers’ or ‘Little Sisters’ — are waiting to be paired with a mentor — called ‘Big Brothers’ or ‘Big Sisters.’

“When we draft a Big, it’s not just their life that is changed forever, but the life of their Little, too,” said Lawrence. “We’re ready and excited to recruit the next class of life-changing mentors. You’ve got what it takes, and we want you on our team.”

How it works

Starting today, BBBSKC is launching a comprehensive effort to recruit new Bigs. On April 25, BBBSKC will celebrate the new Big draft class at Draft Fest with the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium!

Draft Fest, an event usually only open to season ticket holders, will feature on-field activities, access to Chiefs players and management, exclusive tours, and much more!

Individuals have two opportunities to receive an invite to Draft Fest:

  • Become a Big: Anyone that attends an info session by April 20 will receive a BBBS t-shirt and get an invite to Draft Fest.

  • Recruit new Bigs: Anyone that drafts a friend to become a Big that attends an info session by April 20 will also get an invite to Draft Fest.

As a special bonus, for every new Big an individual drafts that attends an info session by April 20, they will receive an entry to win either two tickets to Super Bowl LV (2021) or Chiefs season tickets for two (2020-21 season).
