Big Brothers Big Sisters to mount virtual gala

Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters announced that, for the first time in its 54-year history, it will host its annual gala virtually on Thursday, Dec. 10 at 7 p.m.

Called the 2020 Challenge, the night will feature appearances by “The Voice” winner Javier Colon, Fox 61 anchor Tim Lammers and Gov. Ned Lamont.

A native of Stratford and the winner of the first season of NBC’s “The Voice,” Colon will entertain the virtual audience with his rendition of a song that has topped the charts in multiple decades.

Ryan Matthews, Director of Programs at Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters, said, “With a lineup like Javier Colon, Governor Lamont and Tim Lammers, our 2020 Challenge certainly has an abundance of star power. Yet, I like to think the real stars of the evening are the ‘Bigs’ (adult mentors) and ‘Littles’ (children being mentored), who event attendees will meet and get to know during the course of the evening.”
