Annual dinner held in Statesboro to support Boys and Girls Club

STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

Hundreds of Statesboro youngsters get a helping hand from the Boys and Girls Club.

Wednesday night, people showed their support for the club through the 10th annual Steak and Burger dinner. It showcases some of the programs the club offers.

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal served as the keynote speaker. He talked about the role the clubs, like the one in Statesboro, play in helping children.

“Youngsters are able to come here, are able to advance in their school work. Their numbers are tremendous in terms of those who are making A's and B's,” said Gov. Deal.

Counselors said kids who come to the club raise their grades and lower their absences.

The club is trying to raise money after fire destroyed their gymnasium.
