What

B1G FEST 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, B1G FEST has served as a day of football camaraderie and giving back since 2006.

Past beneficiaries of this event include the Boys and Girls Club of Atlanta, Bert’s Big Adventure, Homeless Pets Foundation, YES!Atlanta, Camp SunShine and Camp Twin Lakes. In 2014, over 1,000 Big Ten alumni, fans and friends participated in the event, and ultimately raised $13,500 for Camp Twin Lakes!

We are happy to announce that we have partnered with Sunshine On A Ranney Day for the 2015 B1GFest event. Additional information about Sunshine On A Ranney Day can be found on their website at www.sunshineonaranneyday.com

Put on your best Big Ten attire and join us in Buckhead - for a great cause! - and get excited for the upcoming football season!

You must stop by the registration table at East Andrews between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m. to scan tickets and receive wristbands.   The first 1,000 people to purchase tickets on-line will also receive a $20 voucher to be used for a future Atlanta Improv Comedy show!

Kickoff Specials

East Andrews will also have Sal's Pizza available starting at 4 PM and Stillhouse will be offering a special on the B1G Classic Burger and Fries. All other food not offered as a Special will still be discounted 10% with your wristband. We will also have Beer Pong and Flip Cup tables set up on the patio outside of Stout with a local bartender so you don't have to fight the crowds inside of Stout.

School Spirit

Be sure to find reps from your favorite Big Ten school’s alumni club throughout the evening! They will be wearing special lanyards for easy identification. Ask them about their fall football game watches, networking events and philanthropy work! And maybe, just maybe, they’ll have some fun items to give away throughout the evening…

Why

Benefiting Sunshine On A Ranney Day

Sunshine on a Ranney Day (SOARD) 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, with the belief that that every child needs their own special place to feel safe, comfortable and relaxed - a place where they can play and allow their imagination to be free.

SOARD has quickly become a leading charity in Atlanta with expertise in residential ADA modifications including wheelchair accessible bathrooms, ramps, widened doorways, therapy rooms, custom built medical storage, and unique children's room design. It is the hope of SOARD that each family who receives a makeover have a renewed sense of hope knowing their child has a fun and safe environment to live in while at home.

SOARD relies 100% on donations from the public and the generosity of our great partners who perform work on our makeovers at little to no cost.

We invite you to browse our website, meet Peter and Holly, read our past makeover stories, watch the slideshows and meet all the great children who are now a part of the ever expanding Sunshine on a Ranney Day family.
