After careful deliberation, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Calgary and Area has made the necessary decision to cancel the 2016 All-Star Weekend.

While it saddens us to cancel our largest annual fundraiser after ten successful years, the current economic climate has made it impossible to raise the level of sponsorship dollars required.

Events like All-Star Weekend provide the funds that ensure we are able to deliver quality, impactful mentoring programs to the growing list of children and families reaching out to us for our services.

While it would be uneconomical to continue on with All-Star Weekend as planned, we will be harnessing the power of the 'All-Star' brand to build a new fundraising campaign that will engage athletes, partners and supporters in a way that is more considerate of the current economic conditions in Alberta, while still capturing the spirit of what All-Star Weekend is all about.

We will have more details to share about the campaign soon, so please stay tuned!
