Former Club kid Tony Orr (L) with Renee Montgomery (C) and Terrell Owens (R). Tony continues a legacy of support and hope for the next generation of Club kids.
By the age of 5, Club alum Tony Orr knew what it felt like to be unofficially relegated to a life with little hope. His life took a more positive direction after he moved in with his grandmother, who registered him at the Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte. The first-generation high school and college graduate has since made a name for himself by dedicating his life and career to helping more kids benefit from Boys & Girls Clubs.
As southeast regional vice president for Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Tony is responsible for connecting supporters with opportunities to support Boys & Girls Clubs. In fact, he facilitated a $10 million individual gift, the largest such donation in BGCA history. Tony continues to pay it forward by mentoring roughly 25 young people.
