In a surprise celebration, Comcast, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities and NBC Sports awarded a once-in-a-lifetime experience to Mt. Airy Club Member Anaa Jibicho – two tickets to the Big Game in Minneapolis on Feb. 4! A true football fan and tech guru, Anaa is a 17-year-old junior at Washington Technology Magnet School in St. Paul.
“Anaa is an inspiration and leader to many of his fellow Club members and receiving an honor like this shows his peers that hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed,” said Terryl Brumm, CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities. “Anaa was recently recognized as ‘2017 Twin Cities Youth of the Year’ by our organization, and we are incredibly excited about the opportunity Comcast and NBC Sports are creating for him.”
Anaa and a guest will attend the Big Game at U.S. Bank Stadium, airing on NBC-TV. In addition, he will receive two tickets to the NFL Experience at the Minneapolis Convention Center, which includes the Super Bowl Memorabilia Show, live broadcasts of NFL Network, NFL Rush Zone, the famed Vince Lombardi Trophy and more.
“Comcast and NBC Sports are proud to recognize Anaa for his exceptional leadership skills and serving as an example to his fellow Club members,” said Allyson Hartle, Government Affairs Director for Comcast’s Twin Cities Region. “Youth leadership is one of the core values of our community investment programs, and Anaa serves as a model for the kind of positive impact each of us can make in the lives of others.”
An active member of the Mt. Airy Boys & Girls Club for the past eight years, Anaa has also participated in the Comcast-sponsored My.Future program.
“The My.Future curriculum has helped Anaa develop a passion for technology, and he now produces professional-grade videos for the Boys & Girls Clubs organization,” said Brumm.
Nationwide, Comcast has supported local Boys & Girls Clubs for nearly 15 years, providing approximately $90 million in cash and in-kind contributions since 2009.
