Union League Boys & Girls Clubs: Project notes + updates

Union League Boys & Girls Clubs

We’re thrilled to support the Union League Boys & Girls Clubs, enabling all young people, especially those who need them most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The ULBGC is committed to developing and inspiring the next generation of American leaders, with programming falling into these core program areas: academic success, healthy lifestyles, good character and citizenship, and leadership development.

To date, we’ve invested $6,000 in ULBGC. CLICK HERE to join us in supporting this amazing organization!

16 September 2021 – Todd had the pleasure to spend some time with Mr. Terry Hendrickson. Terry is a long-time trustee of ULBGC, a former President of the Union League Club, and currently the chairman of the ULBGC Scholarship Committee. To be frank, not a lot of business was discussed, but first over cigars and then dinner, friendships were developed. In addition to serving these kids who need us, time spent with good people will be the great reward for time spent with the ULBGC!

14 September 2021 – We’ve purchased art books for all nineteen ULBGC clubs! The Ultimate Art Museum, by Phaidon Publishing, is targeted at kids from eight to fourteen years of age. The goal in putting a copy of this book in each club is to inspire kids to get interested in art and art history, and to develop an appreciation for art and for museums! And if we get enough kids interested as a result, we’ll attempt to organize an excursion to the Art Institute of Chicago! Finally, a big shout out to Phaidon Publishing for supporting the project by covering 50% of the costs! Appreciate your support!

2 September 2021 – Todd attended his first Board of Trustees Meeting! And he got to address the board with some welcome remarks, which was nice. What a group of amazing people, people you might expect, that are pillars of the community and used to achieving big things. It will do us good to hang with people such as this!

31 August 2021 – The Union League Boys & Girls Clubs agreed today to partner with the foundation on our Schnick Foundation scholarships! In partnering, the ULBGC will nominate kids from its nineteen clubs for the college scholarships. CLICK HERE for more details!

5 August 2021 – The ULBGC Executive Committee and Board of Trustees approved Todd’s nomination to become a member of the ULBGC Board of Trustees.
