Boys & Girls Clubs of Maury County will hold its 7th annual Great Futures Luncheon on Wednesday, April 17th , 2019.
This inspirational event will take place from 11:30am-1pm in the upstairs space at Puckett’s Downtown Columbia.
This year’s event will feature newly-elected Governor Bill Lee as the guest speaker. He will share his inspirational story about mentoring at-risk youth, as well as his vision for our community’s future.
Club youth will sit at each table with guests, and will even have business cards that list their dreams for their future to share with the guests. Club members will put on a moving program that shares their personal stories of how the Club is helping them overcome challenges and achieve a bright future.
The 2019 Great Futures Luncheon sponsors include: First Farmers Bank, First Tennessee Bank, and Maury Regional Medical Center (Gold Sponsors), Heritage Bank & Trust (Silver Sponsor), and Puckett’s Downtown Columbia (Host Sponsor). Sponsorships are still available for this event.
The annual “Great Futures Luncheon” is one of the Club’s main fundraising events and is attended by more than 300 community leaders. This event has sold out in past years, and is chaired by Board member Terry Smith.
“We are very proud of the work we do, but the need in Maury County is great,” Terry says. “We will not rest until we are serving every child who needs us. With your help, we can achieve this goal.”
Tables for eight adults are available for $2,000 each. Individual tickets are $250 per person. Corporate sponsorships are also available. All proceeds help ensure Great Futures for more than 1,200 Maury County kids served by the Club each year.
“Currently, about 70% of kids who attend the Club receive financial assistance and scholarships,” says CEO Robyn Peery. “This is why the community’s support is needed now more than ever. Please, help us ensure that every child has a Boys & Girls Club to call home.”
