Bill & Rhonda Adams, owners of the Vendor Consulting Group, have opened their heart to the children of Benton County and given a generous donation of $10,000 to the Boys and Girls Club of Benton County. The significant donation will assist the Club to expand programs that develop healthy children who are successful in school and make positive life choices. “This type of donation can make a huge difference in how we can operate our health and fitness, academic success, and character and leadership programs in terms of activities and number of children we can serve. In short it will make a big impact in the lives of many Benton County children and youth. We are very grateful of the Adams’ support!” said Jacob Hutson, Chief Professional Officer of the Club. The Boys and Girls Club serves more than 3,500 Benton County youth each year; providing them with a safe affordable place to be in the after school and summer hours. Membership Dues accounts for less than 14% of annual revenues. In 2013 the Boys & Girls Club of Benton County gave out 1,773 scholarships to children and youth whose families could not afford the membership dues. “Without the support of local people, like the Adams and businesses like the Vendor Consulting Group, we could not possible serve the children who most need us” Hutson went on to say.
