SPRINGFIELD — The Springfield Boys & Girls Club will present its second annual celebrity bartending event on Thursday, Sept. 8 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Student Prince and the Fort, 8 Fort St., Springfield.

In 2015, the celebrity bartending event saw the faces of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno, former NBA players, and many other local and national celebrities. The event raised thousands of dollars for the Springfield Boys & Girls Club in 2015, and this year the club looks to top that number as it brings in more than a dozen local and national celebrities.
The Springfield Boys & Girls Club offers programs that inspire, educate, guide, enable, and support all young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, respectful citizens and leaders. It provides a safe environment to learn and grow, ongoing relationships with caring adult professionals, life-enhancing programs, character-development experiences, and hope and opportunity.
