Leaders of the Future Scholarship Awards Dinner 2019

May 10, 2019 | 6 PM | Dank Haus | Chicago, Illinois

As the Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club's (NBGC) largest fundraiser event of the year, over 200 supporters attend the annual Leaders of the Future Scholarship Awards Dinner.

The business casual fundraiser’s main feature is the scholarship awards program where teenage recipients are honored. Last year, NBGC awarded over $57,000 in scholarships to leaders ranging from 8th grade to college level. By awarding the scholarships, NBGC and scholarship donors are investing in higher education for future leaders and providing resources for their long-term successes.

This special evening will include a keynote address by actor, WWE superstar, physique champion and Harvard-educated lawyer, David Otunga. As part of his keynote address, David will share his personal story of how he didn’t allow bullies from stopping him in pursuing his educational and professional goals.
