For more than 50 years, the Prince William County Boys & Girls Clubs has been providing programs for area youth.
Since it was established in 1967, the non-profit has expanded to three branches – the Hylton Boys & Girls Club in Dale City, the General Heiser Boys & Girls Club in Dumfries, and the Martin K. Alloy Boys & Girls Club of Manassas.
It serves almost 4,000 students through its programs, which teach participants new skills and help them prepare for adulthood, according to the Prince William County Boys & Girls Clubs website.
The second annual Great Big Kid Event is supporting the organization’s efforts.
This year’s fundraiser is occurring online on October 7 and October 8. It will feature dinner, cocktails and youth performances.
Community members may purchase tickets and sponsor the event through OneCause.
Proceeds from the Great Big Kid Event are going to the Prince William County Boys & Girls Clubs.
Board Member and Steve’s Auto Repair & Tire Owner ST Billingsley is a supporter of the Boys & Girls Clubs.
While he was growing up on military bases, he participated in youth and summer programs offered by the Boys & Girls Club, the YMCA and MWR.
“I was able to get many different kinds of experiences and be exposed to many things, such as different types of sports, arts and crafts, and education programs,” Billingsley said. “The Boys & Girls Club is the only organization that is like that in our community. It offers these opportunities as well as STEM and life skill programs that are available to every Prince William County child, even if the parents can’t afford it.”
