“The Boys and Girls Clubs are important to a community in that they develop future leaders,” says Richard Averitte, marketing director for Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q. “The Phil Ford Classic is a wonderful opportunity for business leaders in Nash and Edgecombe Counties to get involved,” he adds.
The Boys & Girls Club is a Youth Development Organization dedicated to promoting the health, social, educational, vocational, cultural, character, and leadership development of youth. Rocky Mount native Phil Ford, a former college and professional basketball star and current NBA assistant coach, will join other celebrity personalities in this event. The event is the club’s largest fundraiser of the year.
