Boys and Girls Clubs of Delaware

Did you know?

Donations from the CIRC luncheon will benefit the 2015  Annual Fund for Kids, our annual statewide campaign that addresses the most critical needs our youth face;

  1. Feeding Hungry Kids – through our free statewide food program we are ensuring that at least one of the meals our kids are offered is healthy and fulfilling
  2. Educational Success – through our tutoring and prevention programs we are having a measurable impact on preparing our youth for college or a career
  3. Families in Need – our scholarship programs help support those families that are unable to afford our program rates, ensuring no child is turned away
  4. Saving our Teens – our investment in Delaware’s teens offers a safe, engaging environment for them to learn, grow and have fun

The Annual Fund for Kids is designed to help our youth to participate in programs that will make a difference in their lives!  Every dollar raised at our CIRC event will be matched by the Boys & Girls Clubs' Corporate Board, so your gift will actually be doubled!

Joint Dinner Fun and Sucess

Ho, ho, ho...Oh what fun we had at the Joint Dinner at Harry's Savoy this year! A crowd of 115 from CIRC, SIOR, CCIM and TriState RCA had a terrific time networking, enjoying Harry's delicious buffet and hearing from organization presidents and a keynote speech by Bill Hankowsky, President and CEO of Liberty Property Trust. It's always interesting to hear the inner thought and decision-making processes of one of the county's leading REITs.
