PHOENIX -- in fiamme, the world's finest Italian golf apparel, in keeping with its charitable-outreach philosophy, served as a sapphire sponsor for the 2013 An Elegant Night in Black & White fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Weld County (Colorado). The black-tie affair, which was held March 16 in Greeley, Colo., raised over $240,000 (gross) for the youth of Weld County. The event included a silent auction, live auction, dinner and dancing.
"For the past four years, in fiamme has been a proud sponsor of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Weld County and its efforts to impact the lives of local youth," said Art Kimbrough, vice president of business development for in fiamme. "We are glad to offer continued support to an organization that is key in making a difference in the lives of youth in the greater Greeley, Colorado, area."
Funds raised from this event will go directly to support the club's operations and programming, including year-round programs for youth ages six-18, operating out of four clubhouses in the city of Greeley and the rural towns of Milliken and Galeton. Club staff members implement programs focusing on three priority outcomes for youth: academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles.
