Boys and Girls Club tops local charity programming

From page B5 | April 17, 2013 |

Local residents and Internet viewers are continuing to enjoy much of the new programming on Foothill 7 Television, especially the continuing local segments that feature local charitable organizations in El Dorado County.

The Boys and Girls Club of El Dorado County is the latest production by Foothill 7 Television that is airing daily on Comcast Television Channel 7 in El Dorado County and on foothill7tv.com.

“The Boys and Girls Club is extremely appreciative to Foothill 7 and the Thompson family for their support of our organization and for putting together this wonderful piece on the club,” said Sean McCartney, executive director of the Boys and Girls Club of El Dorado County. “I always say that the best way to appreciate the impact our club’s are making on young lives in our community is to see the club in action and see the life changing work being done.”

In this recent edition of Hometown Happenings on Foothill 7, McCartney is featured explaining exactly what the Boys and Girls Club of El Dorado County is all about and the production takes an inside look at the Boys and Club facility.

In 1999, the local Boys and Girls Club began daily programs for kids at the Armory in Placerville. Today they serve more than 1,500 kids between the ages of 6 and 18 at its three locations on the Western Slope.

The Boys and Girls Club’s mission is to enable all young people to reach their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. The club envisions a future in which the Boys and Girls Club movement is a catalyst for a new age in America, an age in which success is within the reach of every child, and whole generations of children are inspired to a level of civic engagement not seen since the founding of our nation.

“This first class production by Foothill 7 will take our message across the county and beyond and show firsthand why great futures start here at the Boys and Girls Club,” said McCartney. “It is obvious that the Thompson family and Foothill 7 support the community and the future leaders of our community. Their efforts are much appreciated and will surely make a positive impact for our club now and in the future.”

This latest edition of Hometown Happenings is one of many programs currently airing on Foothill 7 TV. The local station was founded in 1986 by resident Michael Dennis.

Dennis has partnered with longtime El Dorado County businessman and auto dealer Ron Thompson who has built a new state of the art television studio. Thompson has increased the station’s production staff and local marketing efforts, resulting in a new, energized outreach to serve the needs of our great community.
