The Boys and Girls Club of Globe and I want to thank all or our wonderful generous sponsors and golfers who participated in the 5th Annual Boys and Girls Club of Globe Golf Tournament that was held at Cobre Valle County Club on March 16. The golf tournament was a huge success and the best one yet! The goal of the fundraiser was to raise enough money to help offset the expense of running the 2013 Boys and Girls Club of Globe Summer Program and children’s activities. We made our goal!
