SUMTER CO., GA (WALB) - The Boys & Girls Clubs of Sumter County held their biggest fundraiser of the year Tuesday.
The 17th annual Steak and Stake Dinner included a silent auction and entertainment.
WALB's own Karla Heath-Sands emceed the event which makes sure the organization can continue to help youth.
"Boys and girls club can only exist with a strong support of the community and so the board of directors, very strong board here, seeks support, financial support, volunteers to help with the operations of the club. It is important for the community to give back and support the operation," said Peter Fleischmann, Director of Organizational Development.
President and Mrs. Carter attend the event each year.
He told us he's proud of the work the club does to help young people succeed.
