Friday, April 15th was the "Celebrate the Children 2011" Dinner and Auction. The evening was amazing and Andson was proud to be a part of it. The silent auction was as fun as the live auction during the meal. The event took place at the Orlando World Center Marriott - most of the banquet floor was used for various parts of the event.
One of the best parts of the evening was the interaction with so many of the kids. From the greeters (the younger kids), to the Youth of the Year, whom sat with each table during the dinner and auction, the entire night truly did "Celebrate the Children."
Congratulations to each Branch Youth of the Year - you all give us a glimpse of what the Boys & Girls Clubs can accomplish.
We want to give a special congratulations to Kesha Dennis of the West Sanford Branch for her achievement as their Youth of the Year. We have had the opportunity to work with Kesha in our workshops previously, and there is no doubt in our minds that she deserved this honor.
Ahkeem Hollimon was the Tupperware Branch Youth of the Year, and was nominated as Youth of the Year for 2011 for Central Florida Boys & Girls Clubs. Congratulations to him and the amazing work he will continue to do through the Boys & Girls Clubs.
Truly a special night, and it couldn't have been more fun! Thanks to everyone that made the event such a wonderful time.
