April 11, 2018 at The Gallery in downtown KCMO provided a great morning of inspiration to over 230 guests. The 5th Annual Match Maker Breakfast presented by McCown Gordon Construction and hosted by Honorary Chair, Founder and President of McCown Gordon Construction, Brett Gordon and his wife Becky. Brett’s Son, Shane Gordon and his Little, Chase -gave a heartwarming welcoming - followed by Dr. Mark Bedell, KCPS Superintendent. Dr. Bedell spoke on mentorship, the mentors who have changed his life and the quality friendships that BBBSKC creates which ended with a standing ovation. There are over 400 Littles in KCPS that are matched with a positive Big. Big Sister, Trisha Brauer shared her story and asked the audience from the stage to join her in becoming a Match Maker. 70 individuals opened their hearts and their wallets to sign up as monthly Match Makers helping BBBS to take more kids off the waiting list and to match them with a Big.
A Big thank you to McCown Gordon, Chairs Becky and Brett Gordon, our Match Maker Committee, event sponsors and those who attended.
