Info on Oprah's Big Give
Every Sunday Oprah Winfrey challenges 10 contestants to make dreams come true for total strangers. In the spirit of this inspiring new show, ABC has given KSVI (ABC6) $10,000 to give big and give back to their community. ABC 6 will take this money and pay it forward in our own unique way.
Four non profit organizations have been chosen to execute an “Oprah’s Big Give Billings” fundraising campaign: Big Brothers Big Sisters, Eagle Mount, Habitat for Humanity and Rimrock Opera. Each non profit has received $1,000 seed money. The non profit that raises the most money during the promotional period will receive a check for $5,000. This check will be presented on Saturday, April 19, 12PM, Rimrock Mall.

Nonprofit's efforts result in additional $5K from Big Give
A streak of great timing gave Eagle Mount the winning edge in the Oprah's Big Give Billings fundraising drive as the nonprofit raised $66,953.
The win brought Eagle Mount an extra $5,000 from Oprah's Big Give at a presentation at Rimrock Mall and boosted the group's total to nearly $72,000.
