Honoring Service

For the last eight years, the Boys & Girls Club of Evansville has worked to encourage Evansville’s youth to serve the community by honoring those who lend a hand during the Eighth Annual Steak & Burger Youth of the Year Luncheon.

The luncheon honors youth who have gone above and beyond, whether it’s aiding the staff at the Boys & Girls Club or helping mentor others. Twenty youth were selected monthly throughout the year from both the Bellemeade Avenue club and the Fulton Square club, from which two youths of the year will be chosen to win the annual prize — a $250 scholarship from Pizza King and a reward from the Boys & Girls Club of Evansville.

“What is truly exciting about the event is, the overall joy and appreciation from the kids and the parents as well,” says Shanna Scheessele, resource development director at the Boys & Girls Club of Evansville. “It is an honor to see the kids being recognized for all their hard work and achievements.”

Community members have the opportunity to meet club members and families, as well as join other community leaders to support the Boys & Girls Club mission through this luncheon. The Eighth Annual Steak & Burger Youth of the Year Luncheon is held from noon to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 6 at the Springleaf Financial Services Boys & Girls Club Unit, 700 Bellemeade Ave. The event is $25 per person or you may sponsor a table from any of the available sponsorship levels.

For more information or reservations, contact Shanna Scheessele at 812-425-2311 or at info@bgclubevv.org.
