What’s going in Northern Nevada

Close to a million, a million dollar that is. That’s what you can say to sum up what the Boys and Girls Club’s Cioppino Feed and Auction is. That’s how much they come close to every year. This feed was started by the late Jack T. Reviglio.  Jack has been giving back to the Northern Nevada community for many of years.  “While Jack and his business made the customer the focus of all their attention, at the same time he revealed a quiet devotion to meeting the needs of his northern Nevada community. He was especially active in fundraising for local non-profit organizations and educational institutions. Jack gave generously to every cause imaginable – it was not in him to say no to anyone. What made Jack happy was seeing others happy. One of his dearest causes was the Boys & Girls Club which he founded with a group of other local leaders in 1976, where he served as president from 1983 – 1993, and where he continued to serve on the executive team until his death. The Boys and Girls Club’s annual fundraiser bears his name – The Jack T. Reviglio Cioppino Feed. He was also deeply involved in the University of Nevada, Bishop Manogue Catholic High School, Our Lady of the Snows, Catholic Community Services, Serra Club, the local Lions Club, Western Suppliers Association, and the National Automobile Museum. Jack was the recipient of many awards including the Italian of the Year in 1982; Man of the Year for the Boys and Girls club in 1983;” (http://www.goblueteam.com/?section=about&page=management&cf=jare)

Which over the years this has been one of the top fundraisers in Northern Nevada.  This Cioppino Feed provides so much revue for the Boys and Girls.  What is the Boys and Girls Club?  “Since 1976, the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows has helped build great futures for thousands of Northern Nevada youth with everything from before- and after-school programs, to sports leagues, education and healthy meals. The Club operates at 19 locations in northern Nevada.” (http://www.bgctm.org/)

If you want something fun to do, this is the event to go to.  Their silent auction is one of the best.  I’m wondering if they would like to come and help me with mine.  The Cioppino is amazing and you will be in good company with wonderful people from our community helping out a great cause.  These kids deserve it.  I have volunteered for the Boys & Girls Nite Out, where you get 3 to 4 kids and you take them around to play games, they can jump in the bounce houses, the petting zoo, get dinner, and watch a circus show. These kids are amazing and they deserve this.  So come out and be like Jack and give back!!
