Where Are They Now?

Some of Central Florida’s most prominent citizens got their start at one of our Clubs. We’re supremely proud to claim these community leaders as BGCCF alumni.

“The Club taught me that there’s more to life than basketball. That my education and relationships are even more important, and that I have a lot to give both on and off the court.”

“Even if I won the Power Ball, I couldn’t repay what the Club has given me.”

“The Boys Club was a safe harbor for me. Their leagues were my only access to competitive sports, and the way I made friends and found my footing in a new community.”

Bruce Mount Jr.

Mount & Nash Law Group, P.A.

“We were hanging out in the Boys & Girls Club parking lot when a friend ran over to tell me my house was on fire. I didn’t fully understand, but I ran home to find my house roped off and burning to the ground. I’ll never forget turning around and seeing the entire Club standing behind me, supporting me. They were my family.”
