After announcing her new album release date in May along with the North American leg of upcoming “Witness” tour, entertainer Katy Perry announced a new commitment to help and inspire kids and teens of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, including those in Beaufort County.
“We are so excited to partner with mega star Katy Perry and Global Citizen to support Boys & Girls Clubs all across America,” said Jim Clark, president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “We are grateful to Katy for rallying her fans to support clubs by donating funds or school supplies, or volunteering. We know they will be greatly rewarded by the opportunity to help our nation’s next generation of leaders reach their full potential and become successful in life.”
As part of the partnership, fans who sign up on Global Citizen’s website www.globalcitizen.org and donate funds or supplies to area clubs are entered to win a pair of general admission tickets to Perry’s upcoming tour.
Fans who volunteer at Boys & Girls club locations, meanwhile, are entered to win a pair of VIP tickets to the tour and a special meet-and-greet with Perry.
With Beaufort area schools beginning, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Lowcountry are currently enrolling club members for the 2017-2018 school year.
Contact the clubs at 843-379-5430 or www.bgclowcountry.org and donate funds and/or school supplies and tweet a photo (be sure to mention @BGCA_Clubs and @GlblCtzn in your tweet) and be one of the many volunteers who work together to achieve the club’s mission: “To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.”
Perry’s tour kicks off Sept. 7 in Columbus, Ohio. One dollar of every ticket purchased for the tour also goes to support the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
