The Next Big Thing-Oct.26 Fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters

PURCHASE, NY, Sept. 9, 2019 – Big Brothers Big Sisters of Family Services of Westchester will bring world-renowned mentalist Oz Pearlman to the Neuberger Museum of Art at Purchase College, 735 Anderson Hill Road in Purchase, N.Y., on Saturday, Oct. 26, 2019, 6:30 p.m. to headline The Next Big Thing, a magical evening of art, cocktails, dinner and mind-bending entertainment to benefit the group’s mentoring programs for youth facing adversity.

Known for his 2015 third-place finish on America’s Got Talent — as well as appearances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and NBC’s The Today Show — Oz (pronounced OHs) Pearlman has become an audience favorite for his charisma, humor, charm — and uncanny ability to read minds.

Unlocking Future Potential

“Since our mission here at Big Brothers Big Sisters is to envision and unlock the future potential of the children we mentor, we think featuring a mentalist will be the perfect way to highlight this year’s Next Big Thing theme,” said Valerie A. Brown, BBBS of FSW Executive Director. “We hope you’ll join us for what we predict will be an unforgettable evening!”

“The opportunity to hold The Next Big Thing in the newly reopened Neuberger Museum of Art also presents us with the perfect venue,” noted Jane Goldman, president of the Big Brothers Big Sisters Advisory Council. Guests at The Next Big Thing will be among the first to view a new exhibit by Yto Barrada, an internationally acclaimed multi-media artist and winner of the 2019 Roy R. Neuberger Prize.

Auctions and a Special Honoree

Rounding out the evening will be silent and live auctions and a tribute to the evening’s honoree, long-time BBBS Advisory Council member and two-time Big Sister, Debbie Linder.

Sponsorships and tickets are available at all levels, ranging from $175 to $25,000 and may be purchased online at or by calling (914) 937-3779.
