Bully’s Community Thanksgiving
Free Thanksgiving eve dinner, Nov. 21
The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows invites the community to its annual pre-Thanksgiving celebration with Bully’s Sports Bar & Grill Wednesday, Nov. 21 from 4 – 7 p.m. at the Donald W. Reynolds Facility on East Ninth Street in Reno.
The Bully’s Community Thanksgiving dinner provides turkey and all the fixings for a free community meal in honor of the founder of Bully’s Sports Bar & Grill, Paul Sonner, who was actively involved in sports programs and was an avid supporter of the Club. The dinner is now in its ninth year and all members of the community are invited to stop in, celebrate and gobble up a traditional meal on the night before the national holiday.
The 9th annual event also includes free standard flu shots from the University of Nevada School of Medicine (UNSOM) beginning at 4 p.m. This is the seventh year the UNSOM has donated the flu shots to diners at the Club and only minimal paperwork is required to obtain the vaccination. Also, bring down the whole family for free family photos along with free youth fingerprinting and I.D. kits and a special letter-writing station for those who may be unable to spend time with family this holiday season.
Please call 331-5437 for more information.
Together, the Boys & Girls Club and Bully’s serve more than 1,000 community members each Thanksgiving Eve. Volunteers are crucial to the success of the evening and those who are interested in volunteering can contact Gayle Farley at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 775-331-3605 x 209.
