heart-felt thank you to all of our sponsors for their generous support, as well as the entire Tampa Bay community, for their commitment to helping Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay.

As we all know, 2020 has brought us challenges that we never could have predicted or foreseen. But, as an essential services provider, we had to do everything possible to keep our Clubs open, to continue to provide hot meals, assistance with e-learning and to serve our families.

So, thank you again - your support will allow us to continue to provide Great Futures for all of our incredible Club Kids!

A HISTORY OF THE

GREAT FUTURES BREAKFAST In 2012, the Great Futures Breakfast became a premier fundraising event for an organization that has served the Tampa Bay community for more than 90 years. It served as an opportunity to unite hundreds of professionals, leaders, and philanthropists for a morning of networking, inspiration, and generosity - raising over $1 million annually to support the more than 20,000 youth served by Boys & Girls Clubs throughout Hillsborough and Pasco County.

Great Futures Breakfast was annually held at the Amalie Arena and attended by more than 750 business and community leaders, who pledged to make a difference in their community.

While that format was not considered safe in our current climate, we knew we could not give up. We believe there is an opportunity to do EVEN MORE than we have in the past by hosting this event virtually and that technology will allow us to potentially reach thousands and make it possible for us to fulfill our continued mission of building Great Futures!
