The fundraiser held in November and December, raised nearly
$1,800 to support teen programming.        “This was a great
fundraiser for us,” noted Shane Spells, BGCCG Board chair. “It
didn’t take much time and was a win-win for everyone involved.
Donors got their certificates delivered to them, Honey Baked
Ham got increased sales and we earned money too.”

One donor noted that they doubled their order because they were
buying through Boys & Girls Clubs.

And, It Just Takes One...another donor received our email about
the fundraiser from a friend, through two forwarded emails -
called and ordered their company’s holiday employee gifts
($4,000 in certificates!!) through the promotion!

We look forward to partnering with Honey Baked Ham again                             Are you the one?

                                 A few quotes from Charles Richardson’s July 16, 2006 Macon Telegraph article
                                 concerning the Carl Thomas Boys & Girls Club.

                                 “Before you think, “what kid is going to study instead of play?” The answer is:
                                 They have no choice.”

                                 “It (the Club) gives structure and reinforces discipline and provides positive role
                                 models for the children to see and emulate.”

                                                                      Read the whole article in our summer ‘06 newsletter.
