Fifteen excited kids got to watch the Lady Vols defeat Ole Miss on February 10, 2013 at Thompson Bowling Arena in style. Vanquish Worldwide of Maryville, TN, donated its basketball suite to the Boys and Girls Club of Blount County. Hot dogs and popcorn abounded and everyone had a great time!
The Boys & Girls Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the educational, vocational, and character development of boys and girls in a safe and caring environment. The club offers a great opportunity for children to have fun and learn in after school programs and special events. Membership is open to boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 17 years. The club has grown into a five county service area in the Tennessee Valley and currently serves more than 5,800 members in 15 facilities.
The Boys & Girls Club mission “is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.”
“Giving back to the community is an important part of Vanquish’s success. This was a small gesture in comparison to the service that this organization brings to children throughout Tennessee”, said Eric W. Barton, President & CEO.
