Meet Club Blue’s 2014 Advisory Board
Chair: Jo Lee, Balentine
"I joined Club Blue because I loved the combination of networking and giving back; from social and networking events with like-minded peers to volunteer days in the club, there is something for everyone. That being said, my favorite part of being in Club Blue is seeing Atlanta's youth thrive in the safe and encouraging environment of Boys and Girls Club; what these kids can accomplish through the Boys and Girls Club is truly amazing!"
Favorite childhood book- A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
Georgia Restaurant Association
"I was looking to get involved and help the youth here in Atlanta. I was invited to attend the Boys & Girls Club Youth of the Year Awards in November. No one needed to say anymore – the impact BGCMA and Club Blue has on these kids’ lives is phenomenal."
Favorite childhood book – The Story of Ferdinand/Where the Wild Things Are
“I was encouraged by a great mentor of mine to become involved in the community, he suggested I attend a Club Blue Event. After my first networking mixer, I was sold! My interest in motivating kids to become their greatest selves fit perfectly with Club Blue’s mission.”
Favorite Childhood Book- Amelia Bedelia
"This is a great opportunity to make an impact on the lives of youths in our local community and interact with young professionals who will be the leaders of tomorrow."

"Joining Club Blue was one of the best decisions I made in 2013. I was looking for a way to become more involved in my community, particularly with kids, and Club Blue allows me to do that while making new friends along the way. I am passionate about the mission and want to do what I can to help us be successful."
"When I was younger, my mother was a big supporter of Boys & Girls Clubs. I remember going to “Steak and Burger” dinners with her and having so much fun at BGCMA events. I’ve always been a huge advocate for young people, so it made perfect sense for me to join Club Blue as a young adult!”
Favorite Childhood Book: Anything Ramona-related by Beverly Cleary
Emory Executive Health
“As a recent resident of Atlanta, I was eager to contribute to the community in a meaningful way. I enjoy getting others engaged to drive a vision and could not think of a better purpose than enriching the lives of Atlanta children alongside other committed young professionals.”
Favorite Childhood Book – Green Eggs and Ham
