Last April, the Guild of Big Brothers Big Sisters launched its annual luncheon in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles and the Inland Empire, with trustee Adam Roseman. The event took place at the Beverly Hills Hotel, and featured highly fashionable clothes, accessories and more from the well-known, chic store Neiman Marcus.
Before the luncheon, a boutique sale presented the wares of numerous retailers, spas, salons and jewelers; all of which were donated and sold for the Big Brothers Big Sisters cause.
Part of the campaign to get the word out about the importance of being a big brother or big sister is public service announcements which express the importance, and fun which both the big and little brother experience from the relationship. In 2006 one such advertisement showed a young man about to play a game of chess with his little brother. Their joy encountering each other is shown in a graceful and gentle way.

Back in 2006 Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles and the Inland Empire, on whose Board of Trustees Adam Roseman sits, produced a short but beautiful public service announcement to promote to the public the simplicity but importance of being a big brother.
The PSA shows a boy, about 12 years old, and a man, throwing pebbles and small rocks into a lake while the sun is setting. Word appears on top of the scene which says “When you are a mentor, you can go to a movie, or to the library or to a museum. But sometimes the most important thing you can do is not much at all. Be a friend, be a mentor. Just be there.”

In the news at Big Brothers, Big Sisters is the announcement that the “world renowned advertising firm” DDB created a new public service announcement on their behalf. Dubbed with the title “Angel” the PSA advertisement exists in two formats, a 30 second and 60 second length “spot.”
The ad depicts a man with white, feathery wings living his ordinary life, showering, going to work, until, at the end of the day he goes to meet a young boy with whom he is going to play basketball. The message is clear that even the most ordinary person can transform himself into an angel when he helps someone by just being there.
As CEO of ARC China, Adam Roseman is certainly a busy executive. At the same time, he makes the time for charitable causes and sits on the Board of Directors for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles. He is also on the Board of Governors at Cedars Sinai Medical Center.
Adam Roseman believes that CEOs and business leaders have a responsibility to invest in the communities that helped to form their success. As he explains, “The need for business leaders to play an active role in philanthropy is greater than ever. An engaged and involved CEO helps set the tone that encourages individual employees to contribute time, talents and money to help make the world a better place.”
One of the many beneficiaries of the largess of the Adam Roseman ARC China Foundation is the organization Big Brothers/Big Sisters. Leading the way as one of the oldest one-on-one youth service organizations in the United States, Big Brothers/Big Sisters has over one hundred years of experience nurturing children ages 6-18. With the special, loving intervention Big Brothers/Big Sisters provide these children form positive mentoring relationships that help them grow into healthy, productive adults with a confident attitude and positive spirit.
