Seven years ago, a friend got me to join him at Third Thursday where I saw how much the Club meant to the kids and community of West Garfield Park.

Shortly after, I joined the Auxiliary Board and, year by year, began getting more involved and more invested in the Club’s mission. During my six years on the Auxiliary Board, I’ve served as Vice President for the Aux Board and led fundraising for both the Firefly Ball and Hustle for Hope spring fundraiser.”
