Boys & Girls Clubs of Maury County’s “Great Futures Virtual Week” is scheduled for July 27th – 31st.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Club was forced to cancel its Great Futures Luncheon, originally scheduled for April 14th.
For the safety of event guests, the Club has decided to combine its annual Luncheon and Dream Makers Dinner Auction into one weeklong, virtual event.
“Our Great Futures Virtual Week will still feature all your favorite elements of our events—from the silent auction, to our kids’ live performances and testimonials, to the exciting live auction with Eddie Ables— but this year you will get to enjoy them from the comfort of your own home!” says Chief Executive Officer Robyn Peery.
The Great Futures Virtual Week is presented by Platinum sponsor, First Farmers Bank. The event is chaired by BGCMC Board member and 2020 Chair Elect, Bruce Hull.
“We are excited to try a new format for our fundraising events,” says Hull. “The Board of Directors has been working hard to pivot this year’s fundraising efforts in light of COVID-19, and developed the Great Futures Virtual Week to ensure the Club can still raise funds while protecting the health and safety of our community.”
Hull continues, “Like so many, the Club has experienced a significant financial impact as a result of COVID-19. We have a goal of $180,000 that would have been raised by the Luncheon and Dinner Auction this year, and we need your support now more than ever to make sure the Club reaches its goal.”
The weeklong fundraising effort will conclude with a “live” auction featuring the always-entertaining Eddie Ables, streaming live on Facebook and Youtube on the evening of Friday, July 31st.

In addition to Platinum sponsor First Farmers Bank, Boys & Girls Clubs of Maury County would also like to thank Gold sponsor Maury Regional Medical Center, and Silver Sponsors Reliant Bank, Heritage Bank & Trust, and First Horizon Bank.
