The Boys and Girls Club of Ruston kicked off the summer with a great concert to raise money for their ongoing mission to provide youth in North Central Louisiana a safe supervised environment where they can develop into positive productive members of society.
Jonesboro State Bank was thrilled to partner with the Boys and Girls Club to provide tickets to the concert for many area youth attending the concert. 285 area youth attended the concert and took advantage of a great fundraiser with a great message.
"The Boys and Girls Clubs of North Central LA is so grateful for the efforts of Jonesboro State Bank in offering free tickets to all the students of Jackson, Winn and Bienville parish to our recent concert at Thomas Assembly Center on LA Tech Campus, for King & Country which is a band that promotes a positive message to young people. We were so thrilled that 285 students actually took advantage of the free ticket offer and attended the concert!
This fundraiser helped us raise over $50,000 and these funds will be used to support the mission of the Boys and Girls Club which is to provide youth in North Central Louisiana a safe supervised environment where they can develop into positive productive members of society. This mission could not be fulfilled without the generous help of community people like Thurston and Grayson Allen and the support of outstanding businesses like Jonesboro State Bank!"
"I just want to say thank you so much for the generosity of Jonesboro State Bank for providing the For King & Country concert tickets to all of the students in the area schools. I teach at Castor High School and am originally from Jackson Parish, so it makes me proud to know that there are people back at home that are willing to do something of such great magnitude in order for the youth in the area to hear a positive message when they hear so much negativity on a daily basis. As a teacher, I was excited to know that my students would have the opportunity to go to the concert if they wanted. Hopefully many will be able to attend and will be impacted in a positive way! Thank you again, and may God bless you for your willingness to serve Him."
