For more than 20 years, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tar River Region’s Steak & Burger event has brought leaders of the Twin Counties community together with out Club members to share a conversation, a meal, and inspiration from a guest speaker. During the event designated to honor our young people, adults dine on burgers, while we celebrate Club members with a steak dinner. A special, and often times first ever, treat for our young guests.

While this dinner is one of the largest and most important events for the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tar River Region, it also provides us the opportunity to present the Champion for Children Award and allows for donors and sponsors to interact with kids and experience a first-hand glimpse of the enormous impact their support has on the lives of children in the Tar River Region.

Tickets may be purchased through Eventbrite.

Keynote Speaker:

Mona Dixon

Mona Dixon and her family lived on the streets and moved from one homeless shelter to another until she turned 13 years old. A few short years, after receiving her coveted Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s (GBCA) “National Youth of the Year Award,” she was awarded over $100,000 in scholarships and honors by The President of the United States in the Oval Office.

At 18, Mona was also named one of the “Most Influential Black Women,” alongside Oprah and Michelle Obama, by Essence Magazine and was later appointed to serve as the youngest member of a U.S. Presidential Community Service Committee alongside four other distinguished individuals.

Mona, at 26, is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership and empowering others while speaking for corporate companies, schools, youth organizations, fundraisers, graduations, parent organizations, and homeless shelters.
