SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER TONY LA RUSSA Tony LaRussa is one of the greatest managers in the history of baseball, and one of the more interesting people to grace the sport. As manager of the Chicago White Sox, Oakland Athletics and St. Louis Cardinals, LaRussa is the third-winningest baseball field boss of all time, surpassed only by legends Connie Mack and John J. McGraw. Born on October 4, 1944, LaRussa was raised in Tampa, Florida, near where Hall of Fame manager Al Lopez lived. The young Tony was friends with future major league player and manager Lou Piniella. As a teenager, LaRussa appeared in the Colt League World Series. Signed by owner Charles O. Finley’s Kansas City Athletics as an amateur free agent in 1962, LaRussa’s broke into the Big Leagues the following year at the age of 18 where he played for 10 seasons ending his playing days. In 1973 LaRussa became a player-coach for minor league teams with the Chicago Cubs, and then was appointed manager for the minor league Knoxville in 1978. He then managed the Iowa Oaks in 1979 until Aug 2nd, when he was appointed manager of the Chicago White Sox. Since then, he has managed every year in the major leagues. After winning the AL West pennant in 1983 with the Chicago White Sox he immediately was named manager of the Oakland A’s. With the A’s, LaRussa created the first dynasty since the advent of free agency: His team won three straight American League pennants and one World Series, as well as four AL West titles. After resigning from the A’s, LaRussa was hired by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1996. From 1996 through 2007, the St. Louis Cardinals appeared in the National League playoffs six times, won the NL pennant in 2004 and the World Series in 2006. Tony LaRussa was inducted into the Boys & Girls Clubs of America National Alumni Hall of Fame in May of 2014 and into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame in July of 2014.

VENUE CO-CHAIRS JEFF & PENNY VINIK Jeff Vinik purchased the Tampa Bay Lightning on March 3, 2010, promising a comprehensive transformation of the franchise and pledging to make a significant positive impact in the Tampa Bay community. Upon acquiring the Lightning, Vinik, now 55, pledged to make the Lightning organization “world-class,” creating a first-rate fan experience while putting together a team of which Tampa Bay sports fans would be proud, on and off the ice. He often asks, “Why can’t the Tampa Bay Lightning be the Green Bay Packers of the National Hockey League?” Vinik promptly hired hockey Hall-of-Famer and four-time Stanley Cup Champion Steve Yzerman as Vice President and General Manager, and then named lauded sports business executive Tod Leiweke as the Chief Executive Officer of the Lightning. In January of 2011, Vinik detailed a vision that included a team inspired by championship values; an organization committed to Tampa Bay, giving back through leadership, mentoring and charitable contributions; and a state-of-the-art venue. That vision began with a new logo and jersey system that debuted for the 2011-12 NHL season, and a privately-funded renovation to the publicly-owned Tampa Bay Times Forum (now named Amalie Arena) that totaled more than $60 million. The renovation concluded during the summer of 2012 when the organization installed the largest center-hung, high-definition vision board in any arena in the United States and Canada, a $5 million investment. Vinik, along with wife, Penny, made an impact in the Tampa Bay community in 2011 by pledging more than $10 million to be donated through the Lightning Foundation over five years to the Lightning Community Heroes program. The Heroes program honors a local hero and a representative charity with $50,000 at all of the team’s 41 home games each season. To date, more than $6 million has been donated to over 200 local non-profits in honor of 125 community heroes. The organization also committed 4,000 hours of community service each season through its employee volunteer program, C.H.A.R.G.E. (Contributing Hours Across our Region through our Generous Employees). Since the program’s inception, Lightning staff members have surpassed their goal each year and volunteered more than 5,000 hours annually at various charitable outings around the Bay area. Vinik and his family increased their commitment to Tampa Bay in 2012, moving to South Tampa from the Boston area. Jeff and Penny served as the chairs of the American Cancer Society’s 2012 Cattle Baron’s Ball, and the family extended its charitable giving in the Tampa Bay community beyond the heroes program, directly touching local non-profits, including the Florida Aquarium, Tampa Museum of Art, the United Way of Suncoast, Metropolitan Ministries, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay and Tampa Preparatory School. Penny Vinik is the chair of a community arts initiative which is enabling Tampa Baybased artists to display their works throughout Amalie Arena and she is a board member of Tampa Museum of Art and Tampa Preparatory School. On the ice, Vinik’s Lightning have experienced several short-term successes while Yzerman has implemented a plan for the organization, with the long-term goal of competing at a high level and being an annual Stanley Cup contender. The Lightning organization’s depth has been greatly improved since Vinik bought the team, winning the AHL’s Calder Cup championship in 2012 and reaching the Calder Cup Final in 2013. Yzerman and the hockey operations department continue to stress drafting and development while the players that have had success as the AHL level have now become part of the core in Tampa Bay. Away from Amalie Arena, Vinik’s Strategic Property Partners, LLC (SPP) has purchased numerous parcels of land around the arena in recently, including Channelside Bay Plaza, a retail complex to the east, in July of 2014. Also in 2014, SPP announced plans for a hotel, retail and residential complex on a parking lot to the immediate west of Amalie Arena. Vinik’s hope is to revitalize Tampa’s Channel District and create synergy between attractions in the area with the arena acting as the centerpiece. Vinik grew up in New Jersey, and attended high school at Riverdale Country School in New York City, before graduating from Duke University (1981) with a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering and Economics. Jeff went on to earn his Masters of Business Administration degree from the Harvard Business School, graduating in 1985. He was awarded Duke University’s Distinguished Young Alumni Award in 1994 and he later served on the Duke University Board of Trustees. In May, 2012 the family made a $10 million donation to Duke to establish a faculty challenge fund that is being used to hire and retain professors who focus on complex societal challenges such as engineering and related areas in energy, global health, brain sciences and the environment. Jeff and Penny reside in South Tampa and have four children: Danny, Jared, Kyra, and Joshua.

Promoting leadership and cultivating future role models is implemented in a variety of programs. The Clubs encourage character building through community service projects, programs centered on increasing healthy attitudes, and teen-focused groups that help instill and build leadership skills. Here are a few key programs in our Clubs that increase character and leadership: Youth of the Year Established in 1947, Youth of the Year is a premier recognition program for Club Members promoting: service to their Clubs, community and family; academic success; strong moral character; life goals; and poise and public speaking ability. Each Club recognizes members between the ages 14-18 years as Youth of the Month winners and then selects a Youth of the Year, who then participates in state competitions. State winners each receive a $1,000 scholarship and participate in regional competitions. Five regional winners each receive a $10,000 scholarship and compete on the national level. The National Youth of the Year receives up to an additional $50,000 scholarship and is installed by the President of the United States.

WHERE TEENS HANG OUT. THE IMPORTANCE OF RETAINING TEENS IN CLUBS

Teen retention is crucial as it relates to our goal of transforming young people into becoming responsible and productive citizens. Studies have shown that Boys & Girls Clubs tend to lose Club Members at the age of 13 and beyond due to extracurricular activities, after-school employment, and other obligations. Studies also show that the time when youth are most susceptible to participating in juvenile delinquency is between the hours of 3 pm – 7 pm. Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay has devised several key programs that work keep our teens in our Clubs and off the streets or home alone.

The program provides teens with age appropriate skill building opportunities and hands-on Club work experience in four areas: Career development Apprenticeship Customer service Community service Junior Staff is open to Club members between 13-18 years of age during the summer. Teen Night Launched in 2011, Teen Night provides our teens with the opportunity to remain engaged in the Club through events planned in part by their peers. Two Staff members are selected for each event and they work with their teens to help them brainstorm ideas for the next Teen Night. This ensures that our teens are actively involved in the planning process, allowing for development of leadership and decision making skills while keeping all activities interesting for their age group. Myclubmylife.com An interactive website designed to provide our teens with a safe and positive place they can spend time online. Delivered in a teen-friendly format, the website provides teenagers with access to information to help them lead productive lives by educating them about career and education opportunities, healthy living, finances and much more.
