Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington will host “BOYS to MEN,” a fundraiser to provide crucial funding to support male-focused programming at the Club. The annual event will be held virtually on Thursday, October 22nd, 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. The Ken Nunn Law Office is honored to serve as the Presenting Sponsor for this unique event.
“This is one of our marquee events each year and promises to leave our guests with a true sense of inspiration,” commented Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington Executive Director, Jeff Baldwin. “The importance of this event cannot be underscored enough. BOYS to MEN allows the Club to provide remarkable and necessary education and mentoring to young males. Additionally, this event gives the Club a public platform to educate the community further on the work our staff performs on a daily basis mentoring kids, especially those who need us most.”
In years past, the event included an in-depth panel discussion - which consisted of coaches, athletes or community leaders - with a spirited discussion about the importance of mentorship. This year, however, there will not be a headlining panel or speaker as Club kids will take centerstage. Guests will see the Club through the eyes of Club kids.
