Campagni helping raise funds for Boys & Girls Clubs

Dick Campagni, owner of Carson City Toyota and Scion and Capital Ford, is challenging other Carson City businesses and residents to donate to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada.

Campagni said he will match, up to $10,000, any donation to the Boys & Girls Club of Western Nevada from first-time donors or someone giving more than they did previously. The match is good through July 1.

“The reason I do it is because I think it’s a great cause for the kids,” said Campagni, who has donated to the organization for the past eight years. “I believe in it.”

Hal Hansen, the executive director of the Carson City location, 1870 Russell Way, said they have about 2,500 children using the club, which provides a safe haven for children and teens during the school year and summer months.

Hansen said they’re hoping to raise $100,000 during this fundraiser.

“We’re seeing more kids and we’re losing state grants,” he said.
