Sanders on hand to help raise scholarship money for the organization.

“Someone that they can touch and feel and to hear them,” Sanders said at the event. “And to connect with them that they are not so far removed so that they can say, I can do that. I can do that. There ain’t nothing special about me. I work my butt off, I come from a single-parent home. father was a drug addict, father was an alcoholic, but I made it. I didn’t let those necessities or those pitfalls distract me. I stayed focus because I had a goal and I had a dream, and I made it.”

The Boys and Girls Club also received a gift from Redstone Federal Credit Union. A commitment of $2 million to The Boys and Girls Club for North Alabama over five years, the largest single gift ever awarded to the North Alabama organization.
