PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) The Boys and Girls Club of the Capital Area’s “It Just Takes One” campaign had a successful evening Thursday at a McDonald’s fundraiser. The Boys and Girls Club is working to raise about $125,000 and McDonald’s offered to host an event last night and donated part of the proceeds it took in during the evening to the It Just Takes One campaign. When the evening was complete, the restaurant gave $1,000 to the club. Organizers were pleased with the turnout last night, plus they gave away prizes and recognized club donors.
Campaign Chair and Chief Volunteer Officer Tad Perry recognized two Boys and Girls Club donors as new members of the “Jeremiah Milbank Society”-Scott and Julia Jones and Jim and Susan Mollison. He says the group is for individuals who give an unrestricted gift of $10,000 or more to a local club through campaigns like “It Just Takes One”.
Susan Mollison says she and her husband feel the Boys and Girls Club is a worthy organization because of all it does for local youth.
Julia Jones says the club is a place where kids can go to have fun with their friends and learn. She recommends that others who are interested in donating or volunteering for an organization to consider the local Boys and Girls Club.
Perry says the Boys and Girls Club can’t exist without the support of many people in community-especially those who make generous gifts of their resources to make the club programming possible for local youth.
McDonald’s visitors won various prizes through the Dakota Radio Group’s Plinko game, Kendra Bly won two Minnesota Twins tickets and Pam Middleton won free McDonald’s desserts for a year.
