"The Boys & Girls Club of Burlington and it's staff are an asset in our community. They have taken an afterschool and summer venue to an entirely new level as they work with children to ensure they are able to live their dreams of finishing high school, going to college, finding a job and being successful."

- Kathy Schirling, People's United Bank - Title Sponsor of Kentucky Derby Dinner gala
