Boys & Girls Clubs Dedicate Teen Center, Host Breakfast of Champions
Boys & Girls Clubs of Wake County dedicated their newest facility Oct. 23, which is named after its president and CEO of 42 years, Ralph Capps. Designed to provide a safe and constructive place for teens to go after school, the new center incorporates technical training and programing of interest to teens, and includes a recording and photography studio and commercial kitchen. The Ralph E. Capps Teen Center is at 721 N. Raleigh Blvd., Raleigh.
The Boys & Girls Clubs also hosted their 12th Annual Breakfast of Champions Nov. 10 at the Raleigh Convention Center. Bubba Cunningham, athletic director at UNC-Chapel Hill, gave the keynote speech and was joined by the UNC band and cheerleading team. The Breakfast of Champions also serves as the induction forum for the Boys & Girls Clubs Hall of Fame, which honors individuals, civic groups and corporations that have strongly impacted the clubs. The 2014 Hall of Fame Inductees are Billy Dunlap and Gary Bush, both long-standing volunteers who have greatly impacted the club’s ability to accomplish its mission. Learn more at wakebgc.org.
