Join the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Flint at the beautiful Flint Farmers Market for an evening of celebration and support! We are pleased to be welcoming former Detroit Red Wing Chris Chelios as our keynote speaker! We will also be presenting the Patrick McInnis Community Hero Award to Club board member and advocate, Andy Goggins! A delicious dinner will be provided by Blackstone's Pub & Grill. The night will feature an exciting silent auction as well as many opportunities to learn about and support our Club!
The Club began programming in 2004 at the Averill Unit to serve youth, between the ages of 7 to 17, in Flint and the surrounding areas. Open after school, in the summer, and for occasional weekend events, the Club offers many positive and fun programs to its over 1,700 members. The Club serves around 150 kids per day after school and 300 per day in the summer.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Flint gives children an opportunity to elevate themselves in the community. The building-centered effort provides a safe haven for children. Programs are designed to benefit children socially, physically, economically, and educationally, establishing a foundation for future successes, and leading to a positive future for Flint, Genesee County, and beyond.
