Dinner With Friends
Dinner with Friends is the Boys & Girls Club’s premier corporate fundraising event.
Proceeds from the evening are dedicated to supporting the 10,000+ local youth members served annually. Each year we welcome a well-known Club Alumni or supporter as our special keynote speaker. Past years guests include Shaun White, Steve Largent, Gary Payton, Evander Holyfield and Matt Hasselbeck.
This year, we are proud to announce 6-time Olympic medalist, Jackie Joyner-Kersee at our 2021 celebrity guest! Having been named by Sports Illustrated as the ‘Greatest Female Athlete of the 20th Century’, Jackie Joyner-Kersee’s athletic credentials are unquestionably among the best ever, in all of sport. Joyner-Kersee dominated the Olympic heptathlon and long jump events throughout her career which spanned four Olympic Games. A former member of the Boys & Girls Club of East St. Louis, Joyner- Kersee has also established herself as a champion of youth.
Also joining us again is our favorite radio host and emcee, Gee Scott who has long supported our Clubs and has a passion for youth programming and helping children and teens realize their potential.
We are grateful to have Cornerstone Wealth Strategies as our Keynote event sponsor for this event.
We continue to seek premier sponsors for this fundraiser. This year’s event will be back in person at the Three Rivers Conventions Center. Premier Sponsors receive extensive advertising and event perks including celebrity experiences, as well as ensuring that the Boys & Girls Club mission of empowering all young people, especially those who need us most, reach their full potential as productive, caring responsible citizens remains true in our community.
