Champion of Youth luncheon to honor volunteers today

The Boys and Girls Clubs of East Texas work to make a difference in children's lives, but it takes lots of volunteers and supportive hands to make that happen.

That's why the Champion Of Youth luncheon honors East Texans who work hard for those goals. At this year's luncheon, members and employees gave testimonies on the impact the clubs have had in their community and lives.

"One of things that psychs you about the Boys and Girls Club is that we have the distinct privelege of coming along side these young men and women and talking to them about thing that are important," said Mario Zandstra, the CEO of Pine Cove, Inc.

Today's luncheon highlighted Mary & Robert Peltier, along with Tyler Building Systems, and was emceed by KLTV 7's own Mark Scirto.
