Two events coming to the Northwoods next month are fundraisers to help youth in the region grow to their potential.

Mary Kinnunen is a spokesperson for Big Brothers-Big Sisters of Northwestern Wisconsin, serving Oneida, Vilas, Price and Taylor counties.  The group is considered a national leader in mentoring youth. Through the group, adults meet with young people about an hour a week either in public community setting or at the student's school. They hope to set higher goals for the matches and  have young people avoid risky behaviors.
