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.

“Singer, Showman, Songwriter, Musician…Frankie Moreno is all of these things and more.

As a child prodigy on the piano and gifted multi-instrumentalist, Frankie Moreno was first introduced to American audiences at the age of ten with his debut on CBS’s “Star Search”.  Since then, he has been twice named “Las Vegas Headliner of the Year”.  His performance on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” brought him back into America’s living rooms again.

Frankie continues to command audienes with his highly contagious music and playful stage antics.  He is unquestionably a unique artist and an all-around talent who puts his heart and soul into his music.

Enjoy this video!  High energy!  We will be having some fun Saturday Night!

    The B&G Club means so much to our community. The Gala is the major fundraiser for the Club. Kathy’s “Free Spirited Flowers” painting is one of my favorites. It would cheer up any home so consider putting in a bid.
