Spring 2019

Dear BIGVISION community,

June 23 would have been Isaac’s 29th birthday. To honor his passion of competitive basketball, this year we're hosting the inaugural 
BIGVISION 3-on-3 basketball tournament on Sunday, June 23rd at Basketball City, New York City’s premier basketball venue.

Let me share some exciting new “firsts” for us. In addition to the format change from past years' color war-styled event, the location has changed. We are forever grateful to The Heschel School, who continues to be an amazing partner and supporter. We’re thrilled that Isaac's sister, Beatrice, is the driving force of the event this year by taking the helm as chairperson! We will have a men’s, women’s and legends division. Whether you wish to be a spectator, register a team, or donate/sponsor, we will have activities for everyone and great competitive games to watch. Come on down to Pier 36 and support us! There will be a sumptuous brunch, power snacks, and beverages. 

BIGVISION is the missing link in recovery, and there is so much more we can do! Our famous year-round sober events are all thanks to the success of this event, our major fundraiser for the year. I urge you to please give generously, as you have in the past. If you gave last year, please consider increasing your gift. 

Our annual auction will consist of some amazing gifts, sports, and entertainment packages. Please consider donating or procuring some great items for us, which we would love to include in our online auction. We are preparing to launch it live, and soon, so please don't hesitate!

All funds raised will ensure support to our ever-expanding community of young adults in recovery in NYC and help keep them on a good path for living a healthy, meaningful, substance-free life! No mother, such as I, should ever have to experience the loss of a child. Help us eradicate the stigma associated with substance use disorder and save lives. 

Thank you for your continued support!

With love and gratitude,

Eve Goldberg
