Proceeds from the 2014 RCU Charity Classic are being donated by the RCU Foundation to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Greater Chippewa Valley. The clubs provide positive and productive programming for community youth ages 8-18. Over 4,200 youth are served annually through membership, community outreach and special events. The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Greater Chippewa Valley currently operates centers in Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls, Jackson County/Black River Falls and will soon open a fourth site in Menomonie. Youth participate in after school and full day summer programming in five core areas of focus: Character & Leadership, Health & Life Skills, The Arts, Sports, Recreation & Fitness and Education & Career Development.
With the donation from the RCU Foundation following the race, the Boys & Girls Club in Eau Claire will be able to create two new classroom spaces to accommodate the growth of its daily programs. Average daily attendance at the club has grown from 52, at the beginning of 2013, to a current average of 75. The club serves approximately 150 youth per day for its Eau Claire summer school programming. These classrooms will help provide technology driven programs to help club members succeed both academically and socially. The mission at the Boys & Girls Club is "To inspire and enable young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens."
