We’re proud to partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Charlotte. This well-run non-profit is a United Way agency devoted to providing fully vetted and trained mentors for at-risk children throughout Mecklenburg County. Big Day at the Lake connects children from Big Brothers Big Sisters with volunteers from Lake Norman and Mountain Island Lake. Our long-time picnic partner is Duke Energy, which provides the beautiful picnic grounds and staff at the Energy Explorium on Hwy. 73 at Cowans Ford Dam. Our official Media Sponsors are Cornelius Today and Business Today. The publications, which can be viewed online at www.corneliustoday.com and www.businesstodaync.com, provide awareness and ongoing advertising for most of the year.
