BGCD Board Chair Lee Kennedy Awarded the Lewis Family Foundation CEO Social Leadership Award: Last week at Fenway Park the Boston Business Journal’s Corporate Citizenship Summit took place where BGCD Board Chair, Lee Kennedy, was awarded the Lewis Family Foundation CEO Social Leadership Award.

Kennedy served on BGCD’s board for 24 years before becoming chair. He states, “It sounds too simple to be true, but it’s true: if you engage the right people and the right friends and the right relationships, the combined forces of everybody helps it happen.”

Kennedy supports a number of other community and social causes including College Bound Dorchester and Neighborhood House Charter School. We are so grateful for his support and leadership at BGCD and throughout the rest of the Dorchester community.

BGCD Members Attend Dell Technologies Championship: BGCD Club members attended the Dell Technologies Championship last week, a PGA Tour tournament held every year on Labor Day Weekend. The tournament contains the Top 100 professional golfers according to the FedEx Cup standings.

Our Club members were invited to watch the practice rounds taking place the day before the tournament started and were even able to test out some of the new virtual reality games that Dell will soon be introducing to the public.

BGCD members had the chance to hear from the founder and CEO of Dell, Michael Dell. It was a great experience for our youth and provided them with plenty of fun and an inspirational learning opportunities.
