(Richmond, VA) - Holladay Properties has been a proud supporter of the Boys & Girls Club for many years and we are proud to announce that Austin Haynes, SVP-Development for our Eastern Region headquartered neared Richmond, VA is continuing a proud tradition of participating in the Great Big Kid Event. Austin will be spending four months mentoring a student from the Prince William Boys and Girls Club and doing his best to be crowned the Great Big Kid.
The Great Big Kid Event kicks off with a four-month commitment from local community leaders ("Great Big Kids") to provide one-on-one mentoring to six pre-selected youth, and culminates with an impact awards dinner highlighting the success stories of the mentor/mentee partnerships. In addition to the mentoring, each Great Big Kid competitor is charged with fundraising for the Club.
Over the last 15 years, Austin has held various birthday charity events that have raised tens of thousands of dollars for local charities. These 24 hour events have included a 20 mile swim, a 72 mile walk, and most recently 3000 pushups. The focus of his charitable work is geared to providing opportunities for children.
This year, Austin is following the footstep of Holladay leaders like Manette Tepe, Paul Phair, and John Phair in participating in the Great Big Kid event. Visit the Team Orange page to support Austin's effort to become the Prince William Boys & Girls Club's first ever Great Big Kid.
