Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee is proud to present the 24th Annual Steak & Burger Dinner benefiting the two Williamson County Boys & Girls Clubs (Fairview & Franklin Clubhouses). The Steak & Burger Dinner incorporates an evening of good food and interaction with Boys & Girls Clubs’ kids at each table. As adults enjoy juicy, mouth-watering hamburgers, the Boys & Girls Clubs kids will be treated to a special steak dinner. Each table will consist of 6 adults and two kids so those guests learn about the kids in a unique setting. And, the event will include a personal up-close interview and/or performance with a celebrity, Michael W. Smith. You and your guests will leave feeling as if you know Michael on a personal basis meanwhile enhancing your corporate brand simultaneously.
