Letter From Breakfast of Champions Executive Committee.

Dear Fellow BOC'ers:

After 17 years, Breakfast of Champions has reached a critical juncture and needs your help. Over the past years, BOC has presented over 100+ programs, tossed 13 terrific parties, given over $126,000 in grants back to the community and worked with wonderful people in the A/E/C community. However, this past year, we have found it increasingly difficult to secure speakers, as well as facing declining attendance, both due to the current economic climate. Additionally, the Executive Committee that have tirelessly worked to bring programs and throw terrific parties, needs new volunteers, as several members would like to be replaced. But, it has been very difficult to replace the current volunteers.

Therefore, we are faced with making critical decisions. In order to continue bringing programs to you, we need volunteers to take over. Without the new volunteers, this will be BOC's last year. We will strive to bring programs through our scheduled year, in a limited capacity, and culminate the year with our annual party. However, without volunteers, there will be no BOC in 2017.

We want to hear your thoughts, suggestions, ideas, comments! Please contact Connie Ng-Wong at cng-wong@portoakland.com or Beth Power at bpower@smithemery.com. We need your input.
