Great Futures Challenge!
September 2nd, 2014
Boys & Girls Clubs of America have sounded the alarm – at 3 pm when school is out our Clubs are in. Help Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids kickoff the start to a great school year where hundreds of GREAT FUTURES will start in our Clubs.
On September 2nd, we will be launching a #greatfutures social media campaign. The goal? To have as many people as possible wear a BGCGRYC shirt and post the picture with the hashtag #greatfutures.
To help drive this campaign, we will be hosting an internal competition in the organization. The team with the most people wearing their shirt color on September 2nd will win a $250 dinner out with their Club team. The dinner can be redeemed anytime between September 30th and May 31st. To redeem the dinner the winning team can select a day where they cash in their night out and close their individual Club early.
