|Star NFL Quarterback Cam Newton Crashes Holiday Party|
At a holiday party, called the Big Holiday Bash, more than 600 Bigs and Littles from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Charlotte had an unexpected party guest: Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton. For the second year in a row, Newton took some time away from the gridiron to spend the evening supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters.
He spent the evening talking about some of his holiday memories from his youth, while at the same time heaping praise on the dedicated volunteers, Bigs and staff that help to ensure children facing adversity are able to have the kind of strong and enduring relationships provided by Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Over the course of the night, Newton mingled and spent time with many of the Bigs and Littles in attendance, even sticking around to watch a talent show put on by some of the partygoers.
"Support from the Cam Newton Foundation brings an increased level of visibility to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Charlotte,” says Karen Calder, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Charlotte. “His focus on ‘Every 1 Matters’ is perfectly aligned with our mission, and he helps to shine a light on the importance of mentoring in the Charlotte region. Plus, he is great with kids. He inspires them to be their best."Local Coverage:
