The SPARK event will raise funds for programming and facility improvements for the Boys and Girls Club, which has been working with underserved kids in West Dayton for over 60 years. The organization hopes to raise funds this year through the CareSource matching gift challenge, sponsorships, silent auction and 50/50 raffle. University of Cincinnati Men’s Basketball Coach Wes Miller will also be speaking about the importance of leadership for youth.
“While this is the second year for SPARK, CareSource and the whole community have been staunch supporters of Dayton youth for decades,” said Crystal Allen, president and CEO of the Boys and Girls Club of Dayton. “It takes all of us to build a safe environment, high-quality programs and unique experiences to level the playing field for all kids.”
