We want to give a BIG thank you to BASF Corporation for your partnership with our Agency! To show our gratitude for the support you give Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Detroit (BBBSMD), we are honoring BASF as our July Partner of the Month! BASF has been and continues to be a BIG supporter and sponsor of BBBSMD's Annual Meeting and Donor Reception. For the past couple of years, BASF has donated $5,000 towards this event in support of the Clifford P. Norman Award, an award that honors a board member who exemplifies the same quality of commitment and generosity as the late Clifford Norman. Mr. Norman was an active member of the BBBSMD and the Big Brother Big Sister of America board for more than 26 years. He was also an employee of BASF and his legacy will continue to live on locally and nationally. Each year Big Brothers Big Sisters agency's across the US will select a recipient to be honored with this prestigious award. We are extremely grateful for BASF and Clifford Norman's generous support and guidance of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Detroit over the years and look forward to working with BASF in 2015and beyond.
