May 18, 2019

HUNTINGTON — The 47th annual fundraiser for the John W. Hereford Boys and Girls Clubs of Huntington was held last month at the Double Tree by Hilton Friday, April 5.

The dinner was headlined by Marshall men’s basketball coach Dan D’Antoni. The Boys and Girls Club choir, led by Josh Trent, also performed, and there was an auction with special guest auctioneer former Marshall football coach Bobby Pruett.

The fundraiser is the organization’s largest of the year and in 2018 translated to around $270,000.

Chartered in 1958, the Boys and Girls Club of Huntington serves around 1,000 children at its two locations in Central City and Guyandotte, providing meals, recreation and educational opportunities to local children who would otherwise go without.
