Boys & Girls Club marks successful Holiday Open House

The Boys & Girls Club of Waynesboro, Staunton and Augusta County raised more than $15,000 through its annual holiday raffle.

The Club marked the raffle on Saturday, Dec. 5, with a new twist – a Holiday Open House that invited members and their families to the Waynesboro Club location for arts and crafts, snacks and visits with Santa.

“We’re trying to reach out to the community and bring families into the Club,” Club Board member Emily Lucente said.

For Club President Tom Hardiman, involvement in the local Club is payback for positive experiences as a youth member.

The Boys & Girls Club “made a huge impact on my life,” Hardiman said, “and I know it’s making an impact on the young people in our community.”

“We like to say our slogan is, Great Futures Start Here. We’re looking for the community to help us help these youth in our community,” Hardiman said.
