Boys & Girls Club Receives Large Contribution

Friday, November 20, 2015

DATE: November 20, 2015


The Boys & Girls Club of the Capital Area has received a $50,000 contribution from Larry Ness and his team at First Dakota National Bank in Pierre. Mark Swendsen, Chair of the Capital Area Counseling Board, which oversees the Club says, “Mr. Ness and the people at First Dakota National have made a wonderful gift to the children of Pierre. We are very thankful for their generosity”.

The contribution will be used as part of the match for a challenge made last year by Mansour Karim to build an endowment fund for the Boys & Girls Club of the Capital Area.

Tad Perry, CACS Board member and the Club’s Chief Volunteer Officer states, “This is a tremendous gift from our community's newest bank and its leadership. Having a community partner who is committed to making this a better place for our next generation is exceptional. Mr. Ness, Bob Clair, Karl Adams and all of the First Dakota National Bank family are going to be a wonderful asset to the Pierre-Fort Pierre Community."
