The BIG Lift
Coming Spring 2020

The BIG Lift is a one-day event for our city to come together and impact communities in need.

This day is about more than lifting a paintbrush or a hammer. It’s an opportunity to contribute your best possible self, lift others to their highest potential and elevate the community towards a common and noble purpose.

One Day, Big Impact.
