we host a variety of events

Do you want to wash some cars, help us wrap holiday gifts, host a bake sale, start a clothing drive, or put on a frog race (we’ve never done this, but we’d love to give it a try)? Let’s talk. Just drop us a line to Lizzie Vigneaux lvigneaux@bigbro.com!

Bass Pro Shops Fitness Series

Not-for-profit events sponsored by Bass Pro Shops and our dedicated community volunteers and sponsors. Our mission is to celebrate health and wellness, outdoor adventures and wildlife conservation in the beauty of the Ozarks. Our programs are designed to include activities for people of all ages, backgrounds, fitness levels and areas of interest. Proceeds from these events are shared by Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Ozark Greenways, Girls on the Run, Isabel’s House Crisis Nursery, Champion Athletes of the Ozarks, and our other local charities.

Each year, our events would not be possible without the help of our volunteers. In 2021, we had about 700 outstanding individuals give their time to support our events in roles such as packet preparation, finish line amenity organization, aid stations and course ambassadors. Those volunteer hours logged turn into charitable donations given back to local charities that serve those in need in our community.

Join us as an individual, your family and friends, coworkers or as a part of a student group to make a huge impact!

The Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr. Pepper is your chance to see the PGA's future greats playing on the Korn Ferry Tour to give local kids great futures. The 2022 tournament will mark our 33rd event, and our goal is enormous as usual. Since the tournament began in 1990, it has raised nearly $18.4 million for children's charities throughout the Ozarks. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ozarks is one of the charities that benefits from this amazing tournament.
