Boys & Girls Club to hold its 12th Annual Great Futures for Kids Breakfast
Motivational speaker, author, entrepreneur and athlete Kyle Maynard is keynote speaker
The breakfast event is a community rally to help create Great Futures for Kids by supporting Club programs that ensure children graduate from high school and achieve self-sufficiency, along with possessing a strong character and leadership skills. Families pay $20 per year to become members of the Club; the Club pays the remaining $500 per year in program fees for each child. It’s money well spent, as members of BGCOP have higher graduation rates and lower teen pregnancy and crime rates than area youth, resulting in a 1,200 percent return on donor investments.
“Our 2014 campaign goal is to raise $100,000 to help us provide the quality programs and services to our more than 9,000 Oxnard youth and their families,” said Tim Blaylock, BGCOP Chief Professional Officer. “Kyle is an incredible motivational speaker who challenges audiences to not give up, to strive to accomplish their loftiest goals.”
A motivational speaker, author, entrepreneur and athlete, Maynard was born with a disability known as congenital amputation. Despite this challenge, he has wrestled for one of the best teams in the Southeast, set records in weightlifting, fought in mixed martial arts, among many other things.
This year’s title sponsor is California Heavy Oil. For sponsorship opportunities, contact Kelly Ventimiglia at 805-815-4959 or kventimiglia@
