We hope that with the construction of this new facility, the youth of the Grand Strand will feel the support their community has for them and will flourish and grow in their new home.”
“As a part of our initiative to provide a safe place for youth and teens to have fun while learning, the Boys and Girls Club of the Grand Strand has launched a $1.8 million Building Campaign,” said William Saunders, Board Member and Co-Chair of Building Campaign of Boys and Girls Club of the Grand Strand. “Generous donations from community partners like Carolina Radiology Associates is bringing these plans to life. We’re grateful as well for the support of the Burroughs & Chapin, the Brittain Family, the City of Myrtle Beach, Kent Gunter and Charlotte Hornets player, Ramon Sessions.
