6th Annual Leadership Award Banquet

On June 6, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sheboygan County honored four generous community leaders at our annual Leadership Award Banquet at the Blue Harbor Resort. Marty Crneckiy received the Lifetime Leader Award for his tireless dedication to the youth of Sheboygan County and to the growth of the Boys & Girls Clubs. Kathy Markevitch received the Impact Leader Award for her involvement with Sheboygan County's youth, as she recruited volunteers and served as a Big Sister. Jaime Marchi and Andi Igowsky were awarded the Emerging Leader Award for their push to ensure that all children in Sheboygan County receive the high-quality dental care they deserve, regardless of their ability to pay.

The Leadership Award Banquet is the Boys & Girls Club's largest annual fundraising event. Thanks to the generosity of our community, the banquet achieved a 70% increase in revenue over last year, and the largest attendance in the event's six-year history.

The Boys & Girls Club Leadership Awards promote community involvement by recognizing individuals who have made significant impact on Sheboygan County's youth. The 2017 honorees embody the core character traits the Boys & Girls Club strives to develop in our members.
