BGCP Society

A special donor recognition to acknowledge and thank our friends and family who have supported the Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence with an annual gift of $1,000 and more.

We hold our wonderful BGCP Society event in September. At this time, we will be announcing the special 2020 BGCP Society Award recipient! Stay tuned!

2019 BGCP Society Award

was bestowed on New England Laborers’ Tri-Funds who have been longtime supporters of the Club, sponsoring numerous golf tournaments throughout the years. From advice on our aging buildings to becoming the premiere sponsor of the 150th Gala Celebration, New England Laborers’ Tri Funds has been there for BGCP every step of the way. In raising $177,000 to establish the Armand E. Sabitoni New England Laborers’ Education & Workforce Development Endowment, they have also ensured hundreds of teens to have the skills they need for their first job, budgeting, interview skills, responsibility of being employee, and engaging in hands-on occupational skills in building trades, retail and technology. Also, Robin Melfi Coia received a special award of acknowledgement for her time and dedication to our organization. Thank you, Armand Sabitoni, Dan Bianco, Vincent Masino, Robin Melfi Coia and the rest of the team for transforming the lives of many of our members.


2018 BGCP Society Award  

was presented to Judy Davis who embarked on a cross country bike ride to raise funds for the BGCP swim program and to establish the first swim Endowment in honor of BGCP Head Swim Coach, Ian Muir.  She stands behind her bike ride of 4,000 miles for 4,000 smiles to give teaching life-saving skills to our beginner swimmers, and to provide an area to practice for our more experienced swimmers in a safe and nurturing environment.



2017 BGCP Society Award

was bestowed on Ed and Lisa Medeiros of East Commerce Solutions, Inc. who have actively demonstrated support for the not only the boys and girls who attend our Clubs but for their families as well.
