Last week I was honored to be the keynote speaker at a breakfast benefit for the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Denver. According to Patrick Hayes, the Vice President of Development, "We had almost twice as many people as last year, and we raised more than $75,000!!! We exceeded our fund-raising goal for the morning, ensuring that we will be able provide camp experiences for 500+ underserved kids this summer. Plus, we know others in attendance will still be sending in their gift in the coming days. So the impact of your speech will carry on in the coming weeks."
Prior to my talk, the B&G Club showed a short video about the Gates Camp, a beautiful facility near the Indian Peaks Wilderness west of Boulder, Colorado. Located on 80 acres of land, this summer camp has been operating since 1974 taking kids out of the city and giving them a taste of the outdoors. Needless to say, I believe this is a great cause that deserves support. Please share this news with your friends and maybe we can top $100K!
