Three years ago, Baltimore banker Richard Yoskey joined Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS), an organization that offers one-on-one mentoring, because he wanted to change young people’s lives. On Monday, Oct. 17, he and the young man he mentors, known as a “little,” cruised to M&T Bank Stadium for Big Brothers Big Sister’s fourth annual tailgate party in a Yukon Denali Hybrid. More than 800 people attended the event.
“The ride was awesome,” Yoskey said. “It was smooth, powerful and had great acceleration.” Yoskey was impressed by the gas mileage and the comfortable interior, too. “Before driving the vehicle I had no opinion about GM, but since driving the Yukon my opinion about the company has completely improved.” So much that he will recommend the vehicle to family, friends and associates, he said.
Yoskey wasn’t the only member of the organization driving to the tailgate party in style. Big Brothers Big Sisters President and CEO Robin Tomechko arrived in an Acadia Denali. “I love it,” she said. “It is just awesome. I just love everything about it.”
August Chiasera, a Big Brothers Big Sisters board member, arrived in an Enclave with his wife, Melissa, and two daughters. “I found it very easy to drive for such a large vehicle,” Melissa Chiasera said. “It’s a great car,” added August Chiasera, who was surprised by the sleek new style.
When Yoskey arrived at the party he pulled the Yukon up to the stadium’s front entrance and drew a crowd, including Captain Dee-fense, a Baltimore Ravens “super fan” who posed for our featured picture. “I enjoy seeing the growth in the kids throughout the year,” Yoskey said. “I was pleasantly surprised at how much I have learned through the eyes of a fourteen year old.”
