Why Your Support Matters

Boys and Girls Club of Collin County has branches in the cities of Frisco, McKinney, and Plano and serves over 3,260 young people from 5-18 as members. When combined, the after school, summer, and outreach programs touch the lives of 9,400 youth annually.

The Clubs have continued to grow as this area expands with new companies increasing jobs and bringing families into one of the fastest growing counties in the United States. Debra Sweezer, Chief Operating Officer, shared,

In 2018 alone, we grew 20% and these types of fundraising events help us to serve more children. This type of growth brings us closer to having a “Full House” in each of our locations and emphasizes the need for support.

Boys and Girls Clubs of Collin CountyBGCCC has 21 buses that bring members from 74 schools to the branches and has plans to expand to other cities in Collin County in an effort to reach more children.

For the 8th Annual Charity Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament, BGCCC is honored to have Title Sponsor Money Matters with Ken Moraif. Ken and his company helping raise funds for their nationally known programs. Their dedicated and professional staff focuses on Academic Excellence, building Character and Leadership, and Health and Life Skills.

Their programs work, as 100% of the children advance to the next grade level on time, 100% of seniors graduate and go on to community colleges, four-year schools or the military and no children are in the juvenile justice system. Ken Moraif shared,

BGCCC does a great job of accomplishing their mission of enabling all young people, especially those who need them the most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. They provide a safe, nurturing environment after school and during the summer with programs that help these children make the right decisions in life. I want to do all that I can to provide these children with the tools to build better futures. They are the key to our future.
