The Boy & Girls Clubs of Porter County will employ a couple of heavy hitters as it kicks off a year-long celebration marking the 40th anniversary of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County.

The clubs will have their 12th Annual Steak and Burger Dinner on Nov. 14 at Valparaiso University’s Harre Union.

A silent auction and registration begins at 5:15 p.m. The main program begins at 6 p.m.


Rev. Edward A. Malloy

The Rev. Edward A. “Monk” Malloy, President Emeritus of Notre Dame and on the Board of Governance for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) will be the featured speaker with a special appearance by Roxanne Spillett, President & CEO of the BGCA.

Area businesses as well as families and individuals are invited..

The Steak and Burger Dinner is an annual fundraising event specially designed to bring adult community members and Boys & Girls Club members together for an evening. Each table is shared by adults and members to offer the opportunity for both to share stories. This dinner is unique because the guests of honor, youths from the Boys & Girls Clubs in Valparaiso, Portage, Duneland and South Haven plus the Kidstop before- and after-school program, are served steaks and everyone else eats burgers.

Each Club member who attends has been selected because of his or her positive attitude, outstanding service and are the best representatives of the Boys & Girls Clubs mission. The objective is to help the club members realize the diverse opportunities available in Porter County as well as provide a direct connection to the youth of our community.

The presenting sponsor for this event is Porter Hospital. Table sponsorship opportunities are still available and range from $200 to $1,500 and offer various marketing benefits. Individual tickets are also available for $100 each.

To secure a corporate sponsorship or to donate a silent auction item or purchase tickets to the event, call Tricia Howe, Director of Marketing & Special Events at 464-7282, ext. 235 or email thowe@bgcpoco.org.
