Last year, we had to postpone the Big Event from April and transition to a fully virtual event in May. The Big Reinvent, as we branded it, raised more than $70,000 thanks to the generosity of our alumni and friends around the country. We greatly exceeded last year's goal and hope you will help us continue that streak.
To that effect, we are excited to announce The Big Reinvent 2, a virtual event and auction that will take place May 15, 2021. We plan to have more than 100 auction items this year including past favorites and new options.
We again ask for your help to make our Big Reinvent as successful as possible to secure the funds that go DIRECTLY to families who have made a BNI education a priority for their children. Below are ways you can help right now:

Suggestions include: gift certificates to local businesses (a great way to support small businesses and BNI), alcohol or alcohol themed items, themed gift baskets, golf course certificates for Chicagoland area, airline miles, hotel certificates, designer purses, jewelry, sports memorabilia, technology (laptops, iPads) etc.
