Diversity in Your Community: Support Flodin Boys & Girls Club

Most of us have heard of the Boys & Girls Club, but do you know what they do?  The mission of the Flodin Boys & Girls Club is to “improve the quality of life for youth in our community, regardless of sex, race or economic background.” The Boys & Girls Club achieves this end by offering programming in five different categories: Character and Leadership Development; Education and Career Development; Health and Life Skills; the Arts; and Sports, Fitness and Recreation.

In order to provide this kind of programming for youths in our community, the Boys & Girls Club needs your support, and they have a really fun way for you to make a contribution. The 2nd Annual Totally Retro Prom to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Rockford-Flodin Unit will take place on Saturday, April 24, at the Flodin Boys and Girls Club (1000 Mill Rd. Rockford, IL. 61108).  Don’t miss out on your favorite 70’s and 80’s tunes being spun by 97 ZOK’s Steve Shannon.  Your ticket includes all-you-can eat and drink throughout the evening.  There will also be a silent auction, prom photos and the crowning of the Prom King and Queen.

Tickets are $25 for stag and $45 for couples and can be ordered by calling 815-332-4988 or by stopping into the club between noon and 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.  Tickets at the door are $30 per person. 

New this year: Post prom to be hosted at Tilted Kilt located within the Clock Tower Resort.  Interested in staying at the Clock Tower or have friends coming in for the evening from out of town? Just call Jessi Somers at 815-229-4199 and tell her you need a room for the B & G Club Prom.  You will get a reduced rated room, a $10 gift certificate to Tilted Kilt, and 2 free day passes to Coco Key to be used any time before July 1, 2010, as an extra “Thank You!” for supporting the youth of our community.
