Chris Young will headline a virtual benefit for Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee, the Great Futures Gala, on Friday, Oct. 2. The concert will feature music from Young, appearances from several surprise celebrity guests, and messages from the youth and families that rely on Boys & Girls Clubs for access to virtual schoolwork, healthy snacks and meals, and social/emotional guidance as they navigate recent events.
This year’s Gala, presented by Nissan, will stream from 7:30 p.m.-9 p.m. CT on Oct. 2. Past celebrity guests at previous (in-person) Great Futures Galas have included Little Big Town, Brad Paisley, Shaquille O’Neal and Martin Short. All proceeds from the event will go directly to the more than 4,700 Club members who count on their Clubs for tutoring, healthy food and life mentorship. Full details of the event can be found at bgcmt.org/gala2020.
“Our young people truly need us now more than ever,” said Jennifer Wheeler Buhrman, Chief Development Officer at BGCMT. “The global pandemic has hit our families the hardest, whether it is a family without reliable internet at home that cannot access virtual schooling, or an essential worker that has to decide between leaving her child at home alone or bringing home a paycheck. Our Clubs and new E-Learning Centers are a lifeline for children and teens to stay on track to graduate while we navigate this new normal.”
