JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Boys and girls around the metro will be spending their summers in a safe fun learning environment thanks to caring organizations.

Saturday the Phoenix Club of Jackson presented a $50,000 check to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Mississippi.

 The donation was made during Saturday afternoon's annual Seersucker & Sombreros fundraising event.

The Phoenix Club, a professional men's club of 25 to 35-year-olds, has been a committed partner for the youth organization.

"We've had members actually who have been a part of the Boys and Girls Clubs at different locations. And when we first were founded seven years ago it happened to be a charity that was near and dear to the hearts of lots of folks that were in the organization," said Tripp Seagars, Phoenix Club of Jackson.

"We're excited about again the donation and being able to support over a thousand kids that we serve every year," added Ison Harris Jr. of Boys and Girls Club.

Since its inception the club has donated more than $200,000 to the Boys and Girls Clubs.
