We're Celebrating Your Generosity!
Thank you everyone who joined us October 24th at the Armory for our annual awards banquet, "Celebrate GREAT." The fundraiser broke past attendance records, thanks to the support and hard work of our Be GREAT supporters, board members, staff and sponsors.
After a VIP visit and autographs backstage, the Boys & Girls Club kids kicked off the evening with a talent show that included singing, dancing and gymnastics. Larry Squire from Johnson Financial Group then welcomed our performers, Shane Decker and Trent Tomlinson. The two were joined on stage by Ken Scott and Mike Austin from WJVL, who co-hosted a "writer's circle" format that included behind-the-scenes tales and song after song.
Following the performances, we were thrilled to recognize the work of a few of the Club's exceptional supporters, including outgoing board president Angel Tullar, longtime volunteer handyman Wayne Teuscher, and star staff member Cole Guenther. We also recognized the "Feeding Our Future" group from the Rock County Leadership Development Academy, who were instrumental in developing a snack program for our kids.
In-kind sponsors included WJVL/WCLO and Minuteman Press. Thank you also to our "Silver Record" sponsors:
