Deerbrook Charitable Trust’s $1 million Match Challenge has been met!
The dollar for dollar match will be used to support our campaign to build a new DeSoto Boys & Girls Club in Bradenton. Deerbrook’s generosity toward this project is the result of its longstanding support of Boys & Girls Clubs; the Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County; and a desire to honor Carl Weeks for his service to BGCMC for over 40 years. Carl was a Club kid as soon as he was old enough to join and has held various positions with the Clubs. Carl retired in 2013 after serving ten years as President. His noble and altruistic character have been apparent throughout his career and the Deerbrook Charitable Trust is pleased to honor him in this special way.
