Our Advisory Council Member of the Month is Kira Sullivan. Kira is the Community Development Case Manager at Goodwill NCW. Kira has been a member of the Advisory Council since 2015. She was asked by a friend to join the Council and she thought it would be a great way to be involved with the kids and the community! Her favorite Club event in the Comedy Night. She said, “It is a great way to bring people together to learn more about the Club, and to support us in such a fun, laid back atmosphere.”
When Kira is not volunteering at the Club, she and her husband Mike love to travel and try new things. She enjoys taking their dog, Kobe, on hikes and when she is at home, she is either crafting or catching up on HGTV shows with her kitties, Dexter and Willard.
Kira, thank you for making a difference in the lives of the youth in our community! We truly appreciate all that you do to support the Boys & Girls Club in Menomonie!
