The Delta Dental ParTEE and Pro-Am for Kids offers the community two ways to support the mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Virginia each May. A cocktail party takes place the day prior to the golf tournament and is a fun evening of games, auctions, food, drink, and impact stories. The Pro-Am consists of an 18-hole tournament of teams of 3 with each team having a pro-player vying for a $10,000 Pro-Purse. Two club members ceremoniously start the tournament with the first drive.
Boys & Girls Clubs SWVA, in partnership with Fleet Feet Roanoke, hosts a four-mile race and kids’ fun run on July 4th each year. In 2022, the event was moved to the Town of Vinton with the start and finish at the War Memorial. This event brings together approximately 600 racers each year, raising awareness of the Boys & Girls Club mission and providing funds to support the Club Experience. The race began in 2011, with Fleet Feet coming on board in 2015 to enhance the runners’ experience. Four on the 4th is a special tradition and fun way to bring the community together on America’s birthday.
In 2021, Boys & Girls Clubs of SWVA creatively and successfully launched a reimagined “Annual Dinner”, bringing groups together throughout the day for an immersive experience where personal stories from Club members were told and senses were ignited through sight and sound. This event is now held annually during the fall season. Attendees can expect a moving experience and the ability to see first-hand how generous support powerfully transforms the lives of local youth.
Each year, generous community members support Project Angel Tree, which ensures that each member of our Boys & Girls Clubs of SWVA family receives a toy to unwrap during the holiday season.
