BCF’s Annual Supporter Appreciation Reception

March 16th, 2023

On Thursday, March 16, 2023, BCF hosted it’s first in-person Annual Supporter Appreciation Reception since 2019. It was a wonderful time to gather BCF’s volunteers, fund holders and community partners to thank them for all they did to support BCF in 2022. Very special thank you to Mike Rainbolt, BCF Fund Holder, who shared his 27 year journey with BCF, in creating more than $1.5 million in scholarships for ROTC students and veterans. We are thankful for our community members who help make BCF great.
