Big Brothers Big Sisters of Acadiana is hoping to get more men involved with a Sports Buddies initiative.

The organization held the party on Wednesday to encourage male volunteers to share their love of sports with a child. The party Wednesday was held at Walk-Ons in Lafayette.

The Sports Buddies, according to Big Brothers Big Sisters is an activity-based mentoring program.

“Sports Buddies provides opportunities for adults to help build friendships and model good sportsmanship and provides the opportunity for youth to experience sporting and recreational events that were once out of reach,” Big Brothers Big Sisters of Acadiana said in a statement.
