VALPARAISO | Scoring 148 three-point baskets at home was just part of the season for the Valparaiso University Crusaders men’s basketball team, but the three-pointers made an impact on the youth who attend the Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County as well.

As part of the “Nothing But Net” sponsorship program, each time the Crusaders scored a three-point basket during the season, four local MVP Sponsors donated $20 to Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County. The “Nothing But Net” MVP Sponsors for the 2012-13 season were Grieger’s Motor Sales, Lakeside Wealth Management Group, Realty Executives Premier and Urschel Laboratories.

With the support of the these community-minded businesses, Valparaiso University Athletics and the entire men’s basketball team, Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County continues to deliver high quality youth development programs and make a difference in the lives of nearly 5,000 Porter County youth who attend one of the four clubs located in Chesterton, Portage, South Haven and Valparaiso or one of the nine KIDSTOP before and after school child care locations.
