Chips for Children Casino Night Fundraiser
Thank You, Greensboro!
Our 5th annual Chips for Children casino night fundraising event raised $70,000 for The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greensboro!
Despite heavy rain all day, we had a record turnout. And on November 27, 2018, it was our great privilege to visit club members at the Reynolds Unit and present a check to Salvation Army Captain Matt Hedgren.
Since its inception in 2014, Chips for Children has raised a total of $210,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greensboro.
Sincere thanks to all of our sponsors, guests, and donors for making this possible. Please make a point to thank our generous sponsors, listed in the column on the right.
Chips for Children supports local programs of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greensboro. BluSky is wholeheartedly committed to their mission.
Funds raised from Chips for Children will help the Clubs sustain their afterschool and summer programs’ focus on academic success and character development while instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, and belonging in each club member.
