About the 2016 Steak & Burger Dinner
The Steak & Burger Dinner is a celebration held by a number of Clubs across the country – and it is typically a Boys & Girls Club organizations largest annual fundraising event. Proceeds from this annual fundraiser are generally used to support the organization's numerous programs in character and leadership development, health and life skills, education and career development, the arts, and sports, fitness and recreation.
The Steak & Burger Dinner incorporates an evening of good food, great entertainment and interaction with our Boys & Girls Club members at each table. As adults enjoy juicy, mouth-watering hamburgers, Boys & Girls Club members will be treated to a special steak dinner. Each table will consist of six adults and two club members so that the event attendees learn about our club members in a unique setting.
About This Year's Speaker
Nick was elected to serve the citizens of Leon County in 2010 with the goal of bringing diversity, increased transparency and a competitive edge to a county he has grown to love. Recruited to play football in 1999 for Florida State University, Nick left North Carolina for Tallahassee and found the place he would call home. As a running back with FSU, Nick was a part of the 1999 National Championship Team and left in 2001 to play at the highest level, the National Football League.
After spending three years in the NFL playing with the Browns, Chargers and Panthers, Nick returned home to Tallahassee and the Florida State Seminoles graduating with dual degrees in business & real estate while working with the Seminole Boosters.
Nick’s passion for football and winning has translated quickly to success for Leon County. He has committed his time in office to focusing on building up Tallahassee’s youth, bringing in new businesses to Tallahassee and growing local businesses. In 2005, Nick met his wife, Tina and knew that Leon County would be the best place to raise a family and his tenacious support of redevelopment areas, quality of life and environmental preservation is ensuring it remains that way for years to come.
