Congratulations to the Community Boys and Girls Club of Wilmington. This year’s annual dinner was a huge success raising more than $108,000 through ticket sales, silent and live auctions, and general donations from the night. The event committee, chaired by our very own Phil Clark, worked with a small budget of just under $10,000 and donated items to create an elegant night with incredible food, drinks, auction items and a dynamic guest speaker, Verron Haynes, former NFL star athlete. The emcee for the night was Frances Weller from WECT and several children from the club sang their hearts out to a crowd of over 280 people.
Everything about the night was awesome but one of the highlights was when Jim Wallace, President and CEO of Intracoastal Wilmington was presented with The Dan Cameron Award. Cedric Dickerson, Board Chair and Hilda Cameron Dill presented the award to Mr. Wallace. Few people earn the right to receive such an esteemed honor. Jim’s service to the Community Boys and Girls Club of Wilmington spans more than 20 years. Way to go Jim! Congratulations.
It was an honor to be a part of such a wonderful event this year as a gold sponsor. OmniStar Financial Group will continue to support this worthy cause and it is our hope that this event and the support of the club will continue to grow in the years to come.
