TRIANGLE BUSINESS JOURNAL HIGHLIGHTS FIRM SUPPORT FOR BOYS AND GIRLS CLUBS
The February 24, 2012 edition of the Triangle Business Journal discusses the Wake County Boys and Girls Club's Annual Campaign. The article highlights the Club's focus on outcomes, and begins with the following information:
In Wake County, 402 teenage girls got pregnant in 2010. That same year, none of the teen girls who are members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Wake County became pregnant.
As noted in the article, the public side of the $1.4 million fundraising effort is co-chaired by BSF lawyer Dhamian Blue. Money raised during the Annual Campaign will offset the Club's operational budget so that it can continue to support more than 4,200 at-risk kids throughout Wake County at 7 different Club locations. The Annual Campaign will help to ensure that for only $7.50 per year, Club members have access to programs in five core areas: (1) character and leadership development, (2) education and career development, (3) health and life skills, (4) the arts, (5) and sports, fitness, and recreation.
