2018 Great Futures Dinner


Dinner to Unite BGCMC Supporters, Club Members, Alumni and Volunteers of the Organization
STUART (October 2018) – The Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County will host its annual Great Futures Dinner, on November 15th at the Kane Center in Stuart, FL.  This wonderful celebration will engage supporters and Club members who are forever changed by their generosity. The event will host nearly 200 attendees, highlight keynote speaker and Boys & Girls Club Alum, Roland Williams, and honor the Martin County School District.
Keynote speaker, Roland Williams amassed an amazing list of accomplishments during his playing years, including being part of the Super Bowl-winning St. Louis Rams team. After suffering a career-ending injury in 2005, he retired from professional football and dove into his passions as a sports analyst, motivational speaker and social entrepreneur committed to helping teens in poverty overcome barriers and maximize their potential. His groundbreaking Extreme Mentoring & Empowerment Model is accomplishing unprecedented academic and social outcomes with high-risk teens in poverty. He’s the perfect speaker to headline the Great Futures Dinner!
The night's Honoree, Martin County School District, has been a great partner and supporter of BGCMC’s mission to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.  Their hard work, dedication and perseverance have guided Martin County’s youth to the inevitable path of Great Futures.
As a special treat, BGCMC alum and 2012 Youth of the Year, Coleen Chan - Los Angeles based artist and fashion designer, will be live painting a one-of-a-kind piece to be auctioned off. The annual Great Futures Dinner is more than an inspiring celebration of success it’s also an opportunity to celebrate supporters, alumni and Club Members!
Great Futures Dinner will take place November 15 at the Kane Center, 900 SE Salerno Road in Stuart. Mix and Mingle between 6-6:30 p.m. and then enjoy a delicious dinner at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $100 per person until October 24th after tickets will increase to $125.
