SATURDAY, AUGUST 20th, 2016!

The B1GFest (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 &  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 B1G 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!
