Since onboarding with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County in 2009, he also helped to elevate the nonprofit’s fundraising efforts to attract over $16 million dollars of contributions for enrichment programming for its members this year alone, and forged strong and creative alliances and partnerships throughout the community, state, and nationally to support and advance the organization’s goals.
Mr. Quail said that he is proud to have led the Clubs with the support of his committed volunteer leadership, exceptional staff, and talented members, and that he and his family will continue to support its mission and vision wholeheartedly.
“Mr. Quail will be sorely missed,” said Dr. Douglas Laurie, chairman of the board of BGCBC. “He helped propel the Boys and Girls Clubs of Broward County to new heights, and we look forward to continuing the legacy of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County with our new leadership.”
