Mark King is a True Sport!

We would like to give a huge thank you to Mark King.  Mr. King had a photo of a shark he had caught, that was entered in a photo contest.  The photo was posted on Facebook.  The photo with the most Facebook likes won $10,000.   Mr. King won the $10,000 and donated all $10,000 to the Boys and Girls Club!!!  So,  a huge THANK YOU to Mr. Mark King!!!

Kim Taresco joined the Boys & Girls Clubs in 2005 after working at Hannah’s Place, a domestic violence and sexual assault shelter. Kim has a degree in human services from UNC Wilmington. She was a big part of the merger between the Halifax Unit and the Boys & Girls Clubs of North Central North Carolina in 2016. Kim’s favorite part of her job is working with the kids (of course!). Every day there is something different and there is never a dull moment. The kids are her inspiration.
