Upcoming Events for Bigs and Littles
June 22 & 29: Microsoft and BBBS
BBBS is Microsoft's Community Partner of the month for June. You'll see cool things at the store throughout June as we partner to match more kids in St. Louis with caring adult mentors.
Throughout June you can bring your Little to the brand new Microsoft retail store in the Galleria for an afternoon of fun. Play the latest Xbox Kinect games or practice your moves with Dance Central. This is one event you won't want to miss. All events take place from 11:00am-1:00pm at the new Microsoft Retail store on the 2nd floor near the central fountain area. Space is limited to 15 matches for each session. To register, click your desired date: June 22nd; June 29th. Only one registration is required per match per date.
