Please join the Boys & Girls Club of Dane County for our upcoming holiday events. We can use the support of volunteers like you to ensure our kids are given all that we can give this year for the holiday season!
On Friday, February 21, 2014 the Boys & Girls Club will host its 5th Annual Hearts for Helping Wine & Cheese Tasting. This elegant evening of food, fun and music will be held at the Madison Concourse Hotel and will showcase some of the finest wines and cheeses Wisconsin has to offer. All proceeds will go directly to support our 2014 summer programming, which will help encourage young people to realize their full potential while having fun a the same time.Facts & Figures
