BREMEN — The Boys & Girls Club of Bremen is preparing to host its second annual Great Big Kid Club event March 19 at 5:30 p.m. at St. Isadore Hall, Bremen. The evening will feature dinner from Hoosier Catering and an art show featuring creations by the children of the Boys & Girls Club of Bremen.

Guests will be able to bid on a host of raffle items, including a 50-inch Panasonic plasma television, an Amazon Kindle, designer purses, golf passes, a website, jewelry and more. All proceeds will be used to defray the costs of providing a Boys & Girls Club to the children and families of Bremen.

The Club serves an average of 70 children daily after school from 3-6 p.m. The mission of the Boys & Girls Club is to enable all young people, especially those who need it most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The Boys & Girls Club provides a safe place to learn and grow; ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals; life-enhancing programs and character development experiences; and hope and opportunity.
