Chris and Soren Christensen, along with Advanced Wealth Advisors, would like to congratulate Thanise Marc, the winner of the Boys and Girls Club of Collier County’s 2014 Youth of the Year Celebration.
Youth of the Year is Boys & Girls Club of America’s premier recognition program for Club members. It was established to foster young people’s character, personal growth and leadership qualities.
To participate in Youth of the Year, candidates must be nominated, write and present two speeches as well as gather support letters. Community leaders serve as local judges who ultimately choose the Youth of the Year from three finalists.
The Boys and Girls Club of Collier County held its second annual Youth of the Year Celebration Monday, March 24, honoring nominees ages 14 to 18. The 2014 Youth of the Year winner was recognized at the event and the Collier County Club’s winner will go on to compete statewide, regionally and nationally to receive up to $50,000 in college scholarships and installment by the President of the United States.
ESPN’s college basketball analyst Dick Vitale and Retired NBA professional basketball player and Boys & Girls Club Alumni Shaquille O’Neil were on hand to make it a very memorable evening.
Advanced Wealth Advisors was extremely proud to sponsor and be a part of such a great cause in the Southwest Florida community.
