Dinner with Friends

Our 2024 Dinner with Friends will be held Thursday, October 17th!

Dinner with Friends is the premier corporate fundraising event for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton and Franklin Counties.

Each year, we welcome a well-known Club Alumni, celebrity, or supporter as our special keynote speaker. Past year’s guests include Shaun White, K.J. Wright, Evander Holyfield, Gary Payton, Mario Lopez, and more! In 2023, we welcomed soccer legend Brandi Chastain as our celebrity guest!

In addition to hearing from a different celebrity guest each year, we also hold an exciting live auction for all guests to participate in. Proceeds from this event are dedicated to supporting the 4,000+ youth served annually at our local Boys & Girls Clubs.

Our 2023 event is all wrapped up, but the exciting moments we shared will stay with us for years to come. It was an incredible and inspiring evening as we heard about the importance of youth development and the power of the Boys & Girls Club from our celebrity guest: soccer legend Brandi Chastain!
