To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
By supporting the Taco Bell Charity Golf Classic, you are providing hope and opportunity to the kids who need us most – in Cleveland and, now, throughout Northeast Ohio.
Your generosity allows kids like Janella to thrive.
Janella never really thought about going to college – until she received encouragement from her mentors at the Club. When she graduated from John Adams High School and enrolled at Bowling Green State University, she became the first in her family to go to college. Then the first to graduate – and with honors.
Janella, now 24, went on to earn a master’s degree in nonprofit administration and leadership from Cleveland State University and became a Cleveland Foundation Public Service Fellow, a prestigious position. You make this possible.
BGCNEO could not do what it does – provide programs for academics, sports, music, art, science and more – without the support of people like you.
Clubs make a difference. Clubs work. And Clubs are a sound investment: A study conducted by the Institute for Social Research and the School of Public Health at the University of Michigan found that every dollar invested in Boys & Girls Clubs returns $9.60 in current and future earnings, as well as cost-savings, to American communities.
We are asking you to help us continue to make a difference by participating in the 23rd Annual Taco Bell Charity Golf Classic.
Please join us. Your participation and support will help give deserving children – kids like Janella – the opportunity to experience a brighter future.
It will be the most impactful round of golf you’ll play this year. We hope to see you on August 3rd.
