Big B.A.N.G. Weekend


We would like to thank all of our sponsors, supporters, players, and staff for making this weekend something to remember! So many smiles, laughs, and encouragement flooded the weekend.

Both the foster youth and kids in the community will forever remember the weekend that they probably believed never would happen in their lifetime.

How Big B.A.N.G. Weekend Supports KYJO Foster Family Agency
Big B.A.N.G. Weekend stands for, “Building A New Generation.” Though the weekend’s events will be chock-full of fun and entertainment, the main purpose for this weekend is to raise funds for the children in KYJO Foster Family Agency.

The goal of our agency is to provide displaced children with a longstanding, nurturing, solid foundation. A home environment where they not only feel safe, but feel cared for, loved, and valued.

At KYJO our children are our top priority. We want to instill in them that dreams are attainable and that their past does not have to be an indicator of their future. To be successful in our mission, we need your help!

With your support, KYJO will be able to provide our foster children with the opportunity to participate in extra-curricular activities. Your partnership with Big B.A.N.G. Weekend will also help to subsidize the cost for a foster family to enjoy holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter; it will help with the cost of birthdays. Your contribution will have a direct impact on the lives of our kids.

While planning the weekend’s activities, KYJO decided to do an event that gives back to our community. We understand that football clinic costs can get expensive. That’s why KYJO, in conjunction with WFCA, decided to put on the Believe and Achieve Free Football Clinic, hosted by Fresno’s own Rob Golden of the Pittsburgh Steelers! The clinic is designed to mentor, encourage, and uplift the youth of our community. We want all children from 4th-8th grade to be able to participate in this memorable event!

How can companies/individuals get more involved?
Through sponsorship! With your generous sponsorship of Big B.A.N.G. Weekend, we can make sure our children are given the opportunity to just be a kid. Special trips such as; Yosemite National Park, Disneyland, University Tours, deep-sea fishing, CA Academy of Sciences, Monterey Bay Aquarium and Fresno State football and basketball games can happen because of your sponsorship in KYJO’s Big B.A.N.G. Weekend. The sponsorship fund will also go toward our annual Believe & Achieve Free Football Clinic. The clinic will include lunch and event T-shirts for all 4th-8th grade children and will be held at Fresno State’s Bulldog Stadium.
A complimentary 10x10 vendor space will be given to all sponsors of Big B.A.N.G. Weekend. The vendor space will be at our Believe and Achieve Free Football Clinic. Bulldog Stadium prohibits the sale of alcohol, food or beverage.
