Established in 2003 as the Young Friends of Boys & Girls Town, our group offers young professionals fun social and business networking opportunities, while increasing the awareness and recognition of the agency and its mission. In 2009, Boys & Girls Town of Missouri and Edgewood Children's Center merged to create parent agency Great Circle, and our group now serves both agencies under the name of Young Friends of Great Circle. Annual events include happy hours, a washers tournament, and the annual trivia night.
To celebrate the Young Friends of Great Circle expansion, we will be hosting a karaoke happy hour on Thursday April 8, 2010 at Double D’s Lounge in Brentwood. The event will feature a karaoke contest, drink specials, silent auction and a raffle for a Cardinals gift basket. Doors open at 5 p.m. with karaoke registration beginning at 6 p.m. and the contest starting at 7 p.m. Open to the public, this will be a great way to meet and mingle with some great local young professionals and support a wonderful cause.
Also, don’t forget to save the date for the 6th Annual Young Friends Trivia Night, which will be held on November 20, 2010.
Great Circle and its member agencies provide treatment, education, prevention and support services to children with a history of abuse or neglect , children with emotional and behavioral disorders and children with autism. As one of the children’s not-for-profit services in Missouri, the organization annually serves approximately 9,600 children and family members.
