On May 17, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Gulf Coast Qatar Center in Pass Christian hosted the 20th annual Golf Tournament directly benefiting the BGCGC Unit on Church Street in Pass Christian. Duane Wilson, event chair, has been successfully hosting this event for years. Numerous members of the community and local business supporters attend to support the cause. This year Mrs. Gwenn Voigts with the Pass Christian Unit Board was recognized for her continuous support and commitment to BGCGC over the last two decades.
Since 1966 the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Gulf Coast has been the leader in youth development programming and advocacy efforts for young people from high-risk environments within our two coastal counties. Thanks to loyal business community supporters like you, we were able to assist over 5,100 children this past year. Our strategic vision is to assist Gulf Coast youth to live out their greatest dreams through the development of skills and competencies and keep 100% of club participants on track for high school graduation, with post-secondary plans. This is accomplished by using technology, adult mentors, evidence-based programs, and life skills training.
