Summer Benefit 2017

August 3, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Thank you all for supporting the Summer Benefit!

This year, we raised a total of $120,000 to support the important programs and services provided to more than 6,000 registered members in grade K-12 at 18 Club and KIDSTOP sites in the St. Cloud metro area.

Of that total, $16,000 was raised through Fund the Need to support our meal program. Our goal is to serve 115,000 meals by yearend.

834 people attended this event and had a great time helping the kids who need us most!

We hope to see you all on August 2, 2018 for next year’s Summer Benefit. Please contact the development department at Club@bgcmn.org to secure your sponsorship.
