Amelia Island and Nassau County have a wonderful Boys & Girls Clubs presence with 2 physical facilities serving the area, The Miller Freedom Center and The Roberts Learning and Achievement Center.
“The Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.”
The Boys & Girls Clubs are very important to the Miller family. Many of you have heard me talk about “Pops”. He was Dave’s father and an inspiration to the many who knew him and to those, who may not have known him, except through his generosity.
Pops helped to establish The B&GC in Nassau County by spearheading the fundraising campaign and helping to secure the purchase of the land for the Miller Freedom Center. Over the years Pops gave his time and money to the B&GC Nassau.
Pops’ daughter, Clara Miller (known to many of us as Aunt Vern) continues in his footsteps as President of the B&GCNassau Foundation.
This year’s benefit is now upon us!
Benefit Co-Chairs, Rose Baugh and Nancy Carpenter, along with hundreds of volunteers have a great event planned.

The featured entertainment is a live performance by Gary Goodman
Comedy Magician, Mind Reader & Illusionist
Gary Goodman began his career at age 12 performing illusions he learned from library books. But it was the famous escape artist, Harry Houdini, that set him on the road to magic.
He has performed his magic for audiences around the world with rave reviews from numerous celebrities, on cruise ships, in Las Vegas and on TV. He continues to relentlessly sharpen and expand his skills in the three major categories of magic: Sleight-of-Hand Magic, Stage Magic, and Grand Illusion.
