Our mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS
In Anne Arundel County, like most communities, many youth are left to go home and spend critical hours
without any adult supervision. Sponsoring the 21st Annual Adrian L. Merton BGCAA Golf Classic to Benefit Youth helps make it possible for more than
2,200 at risk youth in Anne Arundel County to experience life changing educational programs, mentoring ,
and positive adult guidance during the critical years of development. Together, through our mission, we will
be able to inspire and enable our youth to realize and reach their full potential. Presented by The Brick Companies.
