Battle of the Hors D’oeuvres

Battle of the Hors D’oeuvres is the ultimate lounge party for food, drinks and networking! Compared to an indoor food and drink festival, the idea is interaction! This refreshing “non-gala” style event encourages guests to “come as you are” after work, schmooze with Windsor’s best food and beverage establishments, while enjoying creative cuisine, drinks, and networking all for a great cause!

There are many corporate sponsorship opportunities for this event!

Run Your Own Event

These events are organized by you or your community group (e.g. school groups, unions, or corporations) to help raise funds necessary for Big Brothers Big Sisters to operate and ensure that every child gains the confidence to achieve more through a mentoring relationship.

An event can be any activity by a non-affiliated group or individual. The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Windsor Essex Foundation has no fiduciary responsibility and little or no staff involvement, however, we will support you and your event as much as possible to help it be a success. Event examples include: A “something”-a-thon, Golf Tournament, Bake Sale, Raffles, Auctions, Parties, Video Game Fundraising Models – “something-for-kids-sake”.
