Brighton Center WINS BIG during The Big Give SA!
On Tuesday, May 5th the Brighton Center participated in the second annual Big Give SA and doubled the amount of donors and donations they had in 2014! The organization created and implemented a strategy that ran for all 24 hours of the Big Give, including an evening event at TopGolf San Antonio that ran until the final minutes of the day. Brighton Center stayed on top of the Big Give’s Leaderboard after they won the 12pm – 1pm hour with the most donations that hour. By the end of the day the organization had more than 800 donors (the most out of ALL participating organizations) give to them through the Big Give and over $50,000. These numbers allowed them to win an additional $35,000 in prize money from Ancira Enterprises, the Kronkosky Foundation and the Shield-Ayres Foundation to name a few.
Brighton Center plans on using all $85,000 raised through the Big Give to put right back into their programs that serve children with disabilities and their families.These services include in-home therapy, an inclusive childcare and preschool, a special education support & advocacy program and general parenting education series.
