Taylor Porter was a proud "Impact Sponsor" of the 2018 Boys & Girls Club of Greater Baton Rouge's annual signature event and fundraiser, "Steak & Stake," held Thursday, Oct. 18, at the Renaissance Hotel. Steak & Stake is an evening set aside annually to celebrate and recognize the Club's corporate donors. Money raised through this corporate campaign supports programs for school-age youth which focus on academics, health, and character. COX Communications served as the mission sponsor for this year's fundraiser.
Taylor Porter Partners Erin Sayes Kenny and John McDermott are on the local Boys & Girls Club Board of Trustees, while Kenny also served as a member of the Steak & Stake event committee. In addition to Kenny and McDermott, Taylor Porter was represented at this year's event by Taylor Porter Partners John Murrill and Mike Walsh.
This year, Boys & Girls Club of Greater Baton Rouge is celebrating its 37th Birthday, serving the community since 1981, to change the lives of youth every day through after-school and summer enrichment, violence prevention and Youth Legislature programs.
