“This event was one of the best experiences that I have ever had in my life, and my professional career with the Boys & Girls Club! I cannot describe the feeling that I had when I saw the energetic employees run off the bus and cheer! It was completely overwhelming! To have 150 people want to help our club and kids in our community was one of the most positive experiences I have ever had. The kids were so amazed and excited that people would want to do this all for them.’
