2023 Defenders of Potential Celebration

Honoring those making a BIG difference in the lives of Littles

We honored our graduating Littles, Iowa Bigs of the Year, and key donors this past June at our Defenders of Potential Celebration at Grand View University's Viking Theatre.

Congratulations to our 13 Littles who just graduated from high school! We are so very proud of them and wish them all the best in what lies ahead.

We announced the Iowa Big Brother of the Year- Travis Gorsch and Iowa Big Sister of the Year- Janae Gray! Thank you for being incredible mentors, Travis and Janae.

Key partners were recognized for their dedicated support and partnership: Principal Financial Group, Sammons Financial Group Companies, and Salon Spa W.
