Friday, April 26 from 4pm - 8pm, Maggies is hosting GLOW, an event featuring local live music, local vendors, lawn games, a silent auction, food trucks, activities & fun! The best part of GLOW is that every dollar raised from our event goes directly to our philanthropy, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Brazos Valley. We do our best to support our community in every facet of what we do. From the vendors we work with, the companies who donate to the silent auction, to even our promotional products, we work hard to ensure we are lifting up members of our community. With your ticket purchase, you will receive a GLOW tote bag designed by one of Texas A&M's own visualization students, Hannah Boyd! Tickets will be $10 when purchased online and $12 at the door.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Brazos Valley:
Big Brothers Big Sisters recruits community volunteers (Big Brothers/Big Sisters) to match them with at-risk youth (Little Brothers/Little Sisters). Bigs provide encouragement, friendship, guidance and support to children in need of a positive and caring adult role model in their life. Studies show that children matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister are less likely to use illegal drugs or alcohol, less likely to skip school, are more confident in their school performance, and more trusting of parents and guardians. BBBS was founded in 1904 by a court clerk who saw boys coming through the court had one thing in common-no father in their lives. He believed a positive male role model could help them stay out of trouble. BBBS recognizes the value of prevention, providing a positive adult role model for children before they get in trouble in the first place. They have children in their program who already have troubles such as low grades, poor school attendance, discipline problems, or who live in environments that put them at risk for developing problems. Other children in the program are doing well and they want to help keep it that way. This cause is especially close to our hearts as some of our own members are mentors to kids in the Bryan/College Station community. Our members can tell you first hand just how impactful these relationships are for not only the kids, but us as well. We learn from them, we share wonderful experiences together, but most importantly we give these kids the opportunity to just hang out and do what they do best- be kids. BBBS is a 100% volunteer and donor supported organization, meaning that our donations to them every year are crucial. All money donated helps BBBS provide programs to children in our community who need it the most.

Maggies is the oldest women's organization on campus. Established in 1999 by a group of young women who aimed to forge lasting bonds of friendship, Maggies has become a unique place for women from all walks of life to gather and grow alongside one another. Maggies is a name reclaimed. In 1963, when women and people of color were first admitted to Texas A&M University, a historically all white male institution, female students were called Maggies. This term diminished women to second class students, implying that they weren’t real Aggies. In 1999, our founders chose this name to “honor the pioneering women who paved the way for future female students.” By creating a space that celebrates and supports women regardless of if they are members of this organization, the word Maggie now signifies empowerment. Since the beginning, Maggies have cared deeply about inclusivity. We believe that immersing oneself in a group of passionate, diverse women is a catalyst for transformation. As Maya Angelou said, "In diversity, there is beauty and there is strength." To become a Maggie is to become a sister, a leader and a catalyst for positive change.
