FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) – It was a "big" day for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Indiana.

The Annual Brad Miller Gala was held at the Memorial Coliseum Saturday night in benefit of Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Miller, the Kendallville native, two time NBA All Star and former Pacer, hosted the event.

21Alive is a proud sponsor and 21Alive Sports Director Tommy Schoegler played emcee for the evening.

The gala featured dinner, entertainment and a silent auction, and continues to grow every year.

“Every year we've been able to continue to grow. Last year was such a big room and everything this year—we went to half a room from a third, and a third was a lot, so just, you know, glad everyone keeps contributing and growing awareness and funds,” said Brad Miller

Earlier Saturday morning, Miller held a golf outing in his hometown of Kendallville at Noble Hawk Golf Links.
