SAVE THE DATE: The BIG Event, August 20

On Sunday, August 20, The Global Orphan Project plans to host the 12th annual BIG Event at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. Join us as we celebrate hope, transformation and investment in the lives of the world’s most vulnerable.

What is The BIG Event?

What began as a small gathering in our founders’ backyard has turned into one of our most meaningful traditions: The BIG (Build-Invest-Grow) Event. The purpose of The BIG Event is to share and learn about the different ministries within GO Project: how we’ve grown, what we’ve changed and where we’ve made an impact.

It is a chance to inform, but it is also an evening of “celebration, outreach, vision casting, reunion and support, but most importantly, it’s an opportunity to experience our Father’s heart for His children around the world without leaving KC,” according to GO Project president, Trace Thurlby.

What can I expect this year?

The 2017 BIG Event, hosted by co-founders Mike and Beth Fox, will feature live music, drinks, appetizers and stories of what God is doing through this global community caring for local children and families in crisis.

“In addition to holding The BIG Event in one of KC’s leading venues,” Thurlby said, “we’re looking forward to sharing victories and challenges in the day of a life of young adults who grew up as orphans… They inspire us and we look forward to celebrating them with our GO Project family and KC at large.”

You’re invited!

The celebration will begin on the Kauffman Center’s front lawn at 6 p.m., before moving into the Muriel Kauffman Theatre for a musical and cinematic glimpse into the lives and future of the children the GO family invests in.

Please consider attending or sponsoring The BIG Event. We would love to see you there! For more information or to purchase tickets, visit
