Last year’s benefit concert raised $3,500 for the Boys & Girls Club of the Wisconsin Rapids Area. These dollars provided the club with additional extra-curricular activities and helped with operational needs.

A national country musical act, to be announced in July, is headlining this year’s concert. Local country music band Raised Reckless will serve as opening entertainment.

“We are excited for another successful event hosted by Element Mobile and the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters,” Robert Wefel, executive director of the Boys & Girls Club. “This year’s event is anticipated to be bigger than ever, especially because a national country act will be featured and announced in the near future.”

The event will help the Boys & Girls Club raise funds for its operations costs and to meet their three key goals for club members: academic success, building good character and citizenship, and leading healthy lifestyles. The Boys & Girls Club’s mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
