Donnell Bennett’s BEST Season Holiday Fund Drive
With Cox Media Group and the NFLPA
Make this Holiday season THE Best Season for local kids!
Donnell Bennett, former Miami Hurricane and NFL Pro Football Player is a BGCBC alumnus and Board Member. He is a product of this community and has given riveting inspirational speeches to our kids numerous times.
This holiday fundraiser is another way he wants to give back to our kids and clubs.
Together with Donnell, Cox Media Group and the NFL Players Association, you can make this Holiday season THE Best Season for local kids!
Our Goal: to Raise $40,000 - 200 Club Kids can each enjoy a $200 shopping spree at either Walmart, Ross, JC Penney or Kohl’s – personally accompanied by Donnell, other NFL Players and Cox Media Group Personalities.
Now through December 16th, simply make a donation at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County fundraising link:
On December 18th, we’ll take the kids shopping, and with your help it WILL be their BEST Season Ever!
Wait until you see the pictures of their smiling faces!
Thank you for supporting our local kids and community!!
