For 30 years Big Brothers Big Sisters of Yorkton and Area has been matching ‘bigs’ and ‘littles,’ as they affectionately call them, and they invite you to join them in celebration. Michael “Pinball” Clemons, former Toronto Argonauts player and currently the organizations CEO, will be speaking at their gala event planned for September 18, 2013.
The event, taking place at St. Mary’s Cultural Centre, will also include volunteer appreciation awards for long-standing members of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Yorkton and Area, silent and live auction and banquet.
“Pinball was just a perfect match because he really believes in working with kids, and his message that you can be the change that can make a difference just fits,” says Irma Van De Bon-Nicol, executive director at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Yorkton and Area.
Tickets are $55 for individuals, or $400 for a group of eight and are available by calling Big Brother Big Sisters of Yorkton and Area at 306-782-3471 or by email to bbbsyork...@sasktel.net. Prepurchase is appreciated.
Clemon’s number 31 jersey is one of only four numbers that the Argonauts have officially retired. He broke many records within the Canadian Football League during his twelve years of play and was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 2008. Clemons now tours as a motivational speaker through the Michael “Pinball” Clemons Foundation.
