Sunday Night Football Bus Comes to BGCD: The Sunday Night Football Bus, sponsored by NBC-Sports and Comcast, stopped by our Clubhouse last Friday in advance of the New England Patriots hosting the Green Bay Packers last week!

Members got the chance to decorate footballs, received complimentary give-a-ways, toured the bus and participated in plenty of fun interactive activities! Members interacted with Patriots cheerleaders as well as New England mascot, Pat the Patriot, and even pretended to give a live news broadcast using some of the equipment on the bus! We are so thankful to NBC Sports for stopping by our Clubhouse and giving our members this unforgettable experience. Six year old Eithan Anannon was named the winner of the painted football contest and will get to have his ball remain on the bus for the rest of the year!

FIND OUT WHAT’S INSIDE

College Fellows Kicks off November Programming: Every second and fourth Tuesday of the month head on over to BGCD on the 3rd floor of the McLaughlin Building to take part in our College Fellows program. Sessions are hosted by American Student Assistance, an organization committed to helping kids know themselves, their options, and make informed choices to achieve their education and career goals. On Tuesday, November 13th the program will be targeted at juniors and focusing on self-advocacy.

On Tuesday November 20th it will be available for freshman and sophomores and focusing on learning styles. The session on November 27th is open to all high school students and will feature a guest career speaker. For more information please contact Patricia Chapple at pchapple@bgcdorchester.org.

DID YOU KNOW

BGCD Hosts Puttin’ on the Glitz’ Grand Drawing Gala: This past weekend Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester hosted our annual Grand Drawing Gala. The event was an enormous success but we could not have done it without the help of our generous and thoughtful sponsors, donors and volunteers. We would especially like to thank our gold sponsor Lee Kennedy Company, Inc; silver sponsors Corcoran Jennison Companies and The Marr Companies; bronze sponsors Joseph E. Corcoran, McDonald Electrical Corporation, S & F Concrete, T.G. Gallagher, Gaston Electrical, and The McIntosh Foundation.

We were very lucky to have Mayor Martin J. Walsh as our guest auctioneer who helped us raise much needed funds that evening. In addition, we heard some inspiring words from our keynote speaker, BGCD member, Viet Ta, about his experiences at the Club.
