Christmas 2018 will go down as the best Christmas ever for 15 of our club members who traveled to Atlanta, Georgia on December 20th, for a VIP behind-the-scenes tour of Turner Studios. What our members didn’t know was they would be meeting the crew from Inside the NBA (Charles Barkley, Ernie Johnson Reggie Miller and Kenny “The Jet” Smith) and receiving gifts which included brand new bikes. Our members were also surprised with a visit from award winning actress Taraji P. Henson who joined the Inside the NBA crew in presenting gifts to all 15 club members.
Our organization was selected from over 4,000 autonomous clubs across the United States and internationally to take part in this Christmas event and represent the mission and work of Boys & Girls Clubs. Marvin B. Laster, our CEO commented, "For our organization and members to be selected for this event speaks volumes of the work we are doing here in Albany, Georgia. From our front-line staff who work daily and untiringly with our club members to parents, board members and community partners who make it possible for us to implement our evidence-based programming, we can undeniably see the proof of our mission being accomplished.”
We are thankful to Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Turner Sports, the hosts of Inside the NBA, Taraji P. Henson and all that made this once in a lifetime opportunity possible. To see the full Inside the NBA segment, follow the link below:
