Kim Richards, CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carson states, “Travel is a powerful agent for change. It broadens our horizons and helps us find our purpose.  Think how travel has been a positive influence on your life and how it’s connected you to people and communities. We are thrilled with this opportunity for Diane.”
