Posted 11:24 AM 5/10/2012 : Many familiar faces turn out to support the Boys and Girls Clubs of Tucson
TUCSON - A "who's who" of Tucson attended the 10th Annual Boys and Girls Clubs Annual Community Awareness "Ask" Breakfast yesterday morning.
Some of the most recognizable faces in town showed up to support the Boys and Girls Clubs of Tucson. The legendary Lute Olson is a longtime supporter, as is Jim Click, who put up $100,000 for the cause.
News 4 Tucson's General Manager Bill Shaw knows how the Boys and Girls Clubs of Tucson helps more than 8,000 kids develop self esteem, values and skills.
Our boss was joined by Kristi Tedesco, Nicole Szmererei, Lupita Murillo, and others from the station.
But the man of the hour was 18-year-old Anthony Wimberly, the club's "state" youth of the year.
The Tucson chapter is recognized as one of the top 5 percent of Boys and Girls Clubs organizations in the country, the release states, offering dozens of programs in areas ranging from Character and Leadership Development to Education and Career Development, Health and Life Skills, The Arts, and Sports and Fitness and Recreation.
