Dear BIGVISION family,
After Isaac passed away in 2014, I committed myself to doing something to make meaning out of his life, and so, BIGVISION was born. January marks three years since our founding, and 2017 was filled with more than 48 sober activities. While we repeated the most popular events such as indoor go-karting at RPM Raceway and knitting classes with Laurie Kimmelstiel, this year saw the addition of an exhilarating ski trip, writing and meditation workshops, as well as improv, mocktail classes, extreme sports, and many more! Our third annual Basketball Bash in June was a huge success both as an event and as our first fundraiser. We continue to benefit from the success of our efforts.
The tenets that remain constant at BIGVISION are a strong devotion to helping those suffering with substance use disorder and a powerful willingness to try new things. We remain fully devoted to helping young people suffering from addiction see that there is a life of fun, connection and growth in recovery.
2018 will be the year that we build the BIGVISION Clubhouse. As we move into this new chapter of our organization, we need many more helping hands. You make a huge difference to us and the young adults we serve. To volunteer, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
With this promise of growth comes much more financial responsibility and need of support. Please consider BIGVISION NYC as a beneficiary of your year-end giving.
With sincere gratitude,
Eve Goldberg, Founder
