On Tuesday, December 3, Tadlock Roofing in partnership with Boys Town North Florida, held the 3rd Annual 'Raise the Roof' for Boys Town Match Campaign and secured the highest donation to-date. The event raised a grand total of $29,422.00 within TWO Hours.

Boys Town North Florida challenged five of the Boys Town North Florida Champions, nominated from within the Big Bend Community, to each raise $2,500 by 7:30pm. Each of the champions were assigned a Boys Town family home and spent from 5:30-7:30pm phoning-a-friend in a friendly competition to collectively reach and exceed their team goal first. Boys Town North Florida partner, Tadlock Roofing, matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000 raised on Giving Tuesday and presented Boys Town Director of Development with a BIG check at the conclusion of the event.

More children are coming into the Florida foster care system after a sweeping child-welfare reform law went into effect several years ago. Boys Town North Florida has given thousands of at-risk children the love, support and education they need to succeed and offers an alternative to traditional foster-care with a Boys Town Campus on the West side of Tallahassee. Boys Town North Florida serves more than 1,000 children in our community. It costs $40,841 to sustain a home on campus for 1 month and $3,403 to support a child for 1 month.
