Our latest Match Event turned out to be a SPOOK-tacular success! Realtor and Broker Isi started the pumpkin carving event approximately 12 years ago when she was a Big Sister herself. Back then, only about 6 matches showed up. Now, this festive fall event has grown to host 50 matches in 2021. Isi is still in touch with her former Little Sister, who is now 24 years old!
Isi and Smith & Associates invited friends from the local community to join in their annual fall celebration. LaStrada Mobile Kitchen delivered up some tasty, wood-fired brick oven pizza along with drinks and snacks. Noisemakers Music Lessons encouraged all the participants to break out of their shells, grab an instrument, and jam out. There were drums, a keyboard, and multiple guitars to choose from, plus a microphone for those feeling extra brave!
Bigs & Littles also enjoyed the face painting station, where one could be transformed into any number of mythical and fantastical creatures. Matches made memories in the photo booth, where they could dress up as different superheroes, members of royalty, and other fun options.
Thank you to our wonderful staff for making the magic happen. Thank you again to Smith & Associates Real Estate for hosting this annual event for our Bigs and Littles.
