Enjoy a blast from the past to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast with the 5th Annual Stake & Burger Dinner Nov. 8, from 6:30 to 9 PM, at the Hilton Sandestin, featuring keynote speaker Hulk Hogan.
“Having a world renowned Club Alumni like Hulk Hogan as our guest speaker is monumental for our organization,” said Shervin Rassa, CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast. “Hearing about how the Club shaped his life as a young person in Tampa will be a treat for all attendees.”
The retro-themed evening will feature an incredible 50th anniversary celebration, great raffle prizes and silent auction items, a build-your-own-burger bar and, of course, inspirational words from Mr. Hogan.
A 12-time world champion, Terry Bollea a/k/a Hulk Hogan, is considered by many to be the greatest professional wrestler of all time. What most people don’t know is that before the Hulkster became the face of the WWF (now the WWE) he spent his formative years at the Interbay Club of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay and was inducted into the Boys & Girls Clubs of America Alumni Hall of Fame on May 3, 2018.
“If it wasn’t for the Boys & Girls Club, I would have never seen the amazing life that I so have enjoyed. I owe much of my success to my time at the Club,” Mr. Hogan said.
General admission tickets are $125 and include admission to the event, meal and a drink ticket. For $175, you can purchase VIP tickets, which include admission to the VIP reception, food service and champagne for the table, and priority seating during the program in addition to what general admission ticketholders receive.
VIP ticketholders will also have a chance to mingle with the Hulkster during the VIP reception, which is set for 5 PM the same evening.
All proceeds from this event will go to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast, which works in our community to promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence through its programs focused on academic success, healthy lifestyles, good character and citizenship.
“I am proud that we are able to utilize alumni like Hulk Hogan to help us deepen the impact we will have on the children we serve along the Emerald Coast,” said Mr. Rassa. “All funds raised through this event will go back into enhancing the programming we provide the children we serve each week.”
