Gilbane hosts Dream Big! Breakfast

image001-3Boston – On Thursday, September 24th, Suzanne Abbott, BD Manager for Gilbane Building Company’s Interiors sector, held a women’s networking breakfast to benefit the Dream Big! foundation, a 501C3 Boston based non-profit organization founded by Linda Driscoll in 2010.

Molly Schaus, a two-time silver medalist olympian, is the new program director at Dream Big! and was a guest speaker at the breakfast. Forty-five women from various A/E/C firms gathered for the event, each bringing a donation of some kind to support the organization’s cause.

Dream Big’s mission is to help girls from low-income situations achieve their dreams by providing them with the basic items and fees necessary to enable them to participate in sports and physical activities that contribute to their health, education and overall well-being.

The foundation partners with community sports organizations, social-service organizations, schools and community health centers to identify and fulfill the basic needs of girls from economically disadvantaged communities, in elementary, junior high and high school in order to help them engage in organized sports, recreation and physical activities.
