TUCSON, Ariz. -- Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tucson hosted its third annual "Big Gala."

The party raises money for recruiting, screening and training volunteers to be Big Brothers and Sisters to children who need a mentor.

"We have so many kids in our community who still need that mentor in their life and we are the premiere organization that can provide that," said Danielle LeCompte from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tucson.

This year's gala honored two dedicated volunteers, Fred Killion and Sandy Kleen.

Both have been involved in the program since the 1980s.
