Muncie, IN—The Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie would like to thank the many people that made the 4th Annual Just Desserts a huge success. This year’s event received 30 dessert donations from incredible local bakers. Attendees battled it out for their favorite dessert and raised over $26,000 to help support the quality programs the Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie are able to offer to its members. Brian Osner with HIS Auto Parts was the winning bid at over $2,000 and selected the cake made by Charmed Cupcakes.
The 4thAnnual Just Desserts took place on October 3 in the Ivy Tech Ballroom located in the newly renovated Fisher Building in Downtown Muncie. Over 125 community members gathered to raise money to help support the mission of the Clubs. Over the last year more programs like dance, robotics, cooking, and music have been added to the list of activities Club Kids can participate in for no additional cost beyond their annual membership. Each Club kid is able to join all five local Clubs for only $15 per year. It costs approximately $4,000 per year per child for the Clubs to operate. The difference is made up with fundraisers and community support such as this event.
This year’s emcee was Club Board Member, and Parent, Stephanie Johnson. Johnson and her family actively support the Clubs through fundraising, board leadership, and volunteering. Also on stage were members of the Boys & Girls Club Dance team, Kadence and Jayla . They performed to the song Rainbow from the Leap soundtrack.
Thanks to our gracious sponsors for this event. Like helping youth reach their full potential, an event of this caliber takes many supporters. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie would like to extend a big thanks to our Presenting Sponsor, Old National Bank.
