What's your big dream? A free event this evening at Drake University, the "BIG Dream Gathering," offers a time for people to think about their big dreams and ideas, write them down, then get help to make those dreams a reality. The gathering got its start in co-founder Mitch Matthews' West Des Moines home in 2006, but now he travels around the country facilitating these events. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 26 in Parents Hall of the Olmsted Center, 2875 University Ave. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early because the first people to come will receive a free copy of Matthews' book, "Ignite."
