annual Back-A-Kid Breakfast is the Club's biggest fundraising event.
This year, it will be held at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, May 21, 2013, at the
Little America Hotel and Resort. In 2012, more than 500 community and
business leaders attended and learned how the Club impacts youth and
families in our community. This
year we will welcome Jerry Schemmel, the radio voice of the Colorado
Rockies as well as an author and plane crash survivor with a powerful
message to share. We'll also hear from the 2013 Wyoming Youth of the
Year and get an update on how the Club's building project is
Last year, we welcomed Victor Rivas Rivers
as our keynote speaker. Rivers, an actor, athlete and activist, endured years of unspeakable
violence from his father and turned to gangs. But thanks in part to his
local Boys Club and the dozens of caring adults who stepped in to help
him, he went on to be extremely successful and a caring, loving father
to his children.
Previous keynote speakers have included Rulon Gardner, Keni Thomas, Karl Mecklenburg and Dominique Dawes.
