Supporters Honored at Celebrate The Children Partnership Reception
Thank you to all of the wonderful sponsors and supporters who joined us for our Celebrate The Children 2015 Partnership Reception. Over 100 friends came to celebrate the success of this year’s Dinner & Auction, which was the best in Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida event history, raising $1 million.
Big thanks to Wells Fargo Regional President Derek Jones and his team at Wells Fargo for hosting this year’s reception. You have been great partners to our organization for many years and we appreciate all you do. We also welcome Derek to the BGCCF family as a new member of our Board of Directors.
Guests heard from Temple Terrace Club alum Michael McCauley, who spoke about how his involvement at his Boys & Girls Club changed his life and prepared him to continue his education. Jennifer Slone Tobin, Celebrate The Children Sponsor Co-Chair, provided highlights of this year’s signature event, and Gary Cain, BGCCF President & CEO, gave an update on our organization.
We are so grateful to all of the sponsors, contributors, board members, guests and volunteers who helped make Celebrate The Children 2015 such a tremendous success. Special thanks to our Platinum Sponsors, Tupperware Brands Corporation, United Trophy and Walt Disney World Resort.
We hope everyone had a great time at the reception and we look forward to celebrating with you again next year!
