B1GFest 2015

Join us for the 2015 B1GFest Event!

WE ARE very happy to announce that our official total raised for B1GFest 2015 is $12,900!!! We were so excited to present this check to Sunshine on a Ranney Day this week. We could not have raised this much for this wonderful charity without the help of all of our volunteers, sponsors, and most importantly the hundreds of attendees that come out to celebrate with us for a good cause each year. Thank YOU for allowing us to give back to our community in such a big way! We can't wait to see the amazing room makeovers that Sunshine on a Ranney Day is able to provide for so many deserving children in the Atlanta Community because of your support! Be sure to like their Facebook page to follow their ongoing projects and events throughout the year.




The Big Fest (formally Big Ten Pub Crawl) is the premier charity event for fans, friends and alumni of the schools of the Big Ten Athletic Conference. Hosted by the leadership teams from Atlanta-based alumni groups, the Big Fest has served as a day of football camaraderie and giving back since 2006.

The 2015 Big Fest will benefit Sunshine on a Ranney Day.  Sunshine on a Ranney Day is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit approved organization based in Atlanta, Georgia that creates dream room & home makeovers for children with long-term illnesses. Founded in 2012 by Peter and Holly Ranney, SOARD specializes in residential ADA modifications including wheelchair accessible bathrooms, ramps, widened doorways, as well as therapy rooms, custom built medical storage, and unique children's room design. For more information about B1GFest's charity beneficiary, please visit http://www.sunshineonaranneyday.com/.

Put on your best Big Ten attire and join us as we drop in on some of city's best watering holes - for a great cause! - and get excited for the upcoming football season!
