Madison residents gathered recently to learn the role they would be playing in changing youths lives through dance. Madison-Morgan Boys & Girls Club’s Dancing with the Madison Stars fundraiser is set for Nov. 8 and the dance teams spent time hearing from Club alums to previous dancer on just how impactful their commitment will be for the youth.


“I’ve been with the Madison Club for 10 years,” Bob Mackey, CEO & President of Boys & Girls Clubs of North Central Georgia shared. “We’ve watched the Club grow to such new heights. We had two rooms when we opened our doors and now we have four with a Novelis STEM lab, Art lab, Learning Center, game room and an off-site teen center at the high school.”


Mackey told this year’s dancers, “It’s all about the heart you have invested for the lives of the community and I can’t thank you all enough because it makes a difference. We are so appreciative of you.“


Club Alumni, Tay Hyman, shared his Club impact with dancers in the room. His message was simple “this Club saves lives.”


“I wouldn’t be standing here without this Club and the countless people who have invested in me throughout the years,” he said. “That’s why now I give back because that’s what the Club has taught me. I want our young people to know they can graduate, they can make a difference – just like you are about to do.”


Nancy Vaughan, Co-President of the MMBGC Advisory board, closed the evening with a question “What is your why for dancing?”


“You might be doing it for a high school senior who wants to be the first to go to college. It might be for a fifth grader who just wants to have a better year this year or maybe a third grader who wants to come out of her shell a little,” she shared “Wherever your find your why here at the Club, know that you are dancing for them and their future and we are so thankful for what you’re doing.”
