BOYS & GIRLS CLUB AND BULLY’S SPORTS BAR & GRILL INVITE COMMUNITY TO FREE THANKSGIVING EVE DINNER

Ninth Annual Free Community Thanksgiving continues Wednesday, Nov. 21, 4-7 p.m. at Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows

The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows and Bully’s Sports Bar & Grill are excited to embark on the Ninth Annual Free Community Thanksgiving Dinner, Wednesday, Nov. 21 from 4 – 7 p.m. at the Club’s Donald W. Reynolds Facility on East Ninth Street in Reno. All members of the community are invited to enjoy the feast and festivities this Thanksgiving Eve including a free family photograph station and free flu shots, thanks to the University of Nevada School of Medicine (UNSOM).

“Bully’s is very proud to be able to participate in the free Community Dinner again this year,” said Jo Sonner, owner of Bully’s Sports Bar & Grill. “It gives us an opportunity to bring people together and give back to the community; which is a big part of the Bully’s culture and is really what the holidays are all about.”

Together, the Boys & Girls Club and Bully’s anticipate serving nearly 1,500 members of the community Nov. 21, bringing the total number of people served in the event’s history to almost 10,000. During that annual event, the community is invited to feast over hot turkey, stuffing, cranberries, and all the other fixings while enjoying the merriment of family and friends in a location famous for the helping hands that reach more than 10,000 children in the Club’s 20 northern Nevada locations each year.

The Club and Bully’s also help guests stay healthy this holiday season with free flu shots compliments of the UNSOM.  The organizations make the night even more memorable for attendees with a free photo booth, making for the perfect family snap shot, and by providing a card-making station for attendees to reach out to military members who are stationed overseas during the holiday season.

Paul Sonner Community Thanksgiving next week!

The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows invites the community to its annual pre-Thanksgiving celebration with Bully’s Sports Bar & Grill Wednesday, Nov. 24 from 4 – 7 p.m. at the Donald W. Reynolds Facility on East Ninth Street in Reno.

The Paul Sonner 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, who was actively involved in sports programs and was an avid supporter of the Club. The dinner is now in its seventh 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 7th 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 fourth 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.

In addition, all Bully’s locations are now accepting donations of jackets, gloves, and hats to benefit children at the Boys & Girls Club, through Nov. 24. Donation bins are in stores now and all items will be presented to the Club during the Thanksgiving Eve event.

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 gfarley@bgctm.org or by calling 775-331-3605 x 209.
