DUMFRIES, Va. – When it comes to raising funds, the Boys and Girls Club will put their money where they mouth is.

For every donation made to the Prince William County / Manassas Boys and Girls Club over the next four months, the organization’s Board of Directors will match it. The goal is to raise $50,000 — $25,000 of which will be matched by Board — to fund an organization that allows children to create robots, shadow leaders of Fortune 500 businesses, and participate in challenging sports programs.

“Our Clubs impact thousands of youth each year that benefit from our $30 annual Club membership,” said Regional Board President Rhett Pfitzner. “That membership is what keeps our youth of all backgrounds participating in education, career, sports, character, technology and arts programming.”

The clubs also provide childcare and a summer camp program, and are supported, in part, by a “Steak ‘N Steak” fundraiser held annually.

The Boys and Girls Clubs have locations in Dale City, Dumfries, and Manassas.
