LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Some WAVE 3 News employees spent the day on the golf course, but it was all for a good cause.

They were taking part in Links for Littles, golf scramble benefitting Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Kentuckiana. It’s a program in which WAVE 3 News general manager Ken Selvaggi has experience as a Big.

The scramble raises money for the non-profit, which matches young people with mentors in the community.

At the current time, Big Brothers, Big Sisters has a waiting list that’s 500 families long. That means there’s a need for more people to step up and become a Big Brother or Big Sister.

“It’s really easy to become a big,” Gary Friedman, CEO of BBBS Kentuckiana said. “It only takes a few hours a month all you’ve got to do is care about young people ... and there’s so many folks out there.”

There was a record turnout for this year’s golf scramble with nearly 190 golfers participating.
