Springfield Clinic continues it’s year-long celebration of their 75th anniversary.

CEO Randy Bryant presented the Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Springfield with sporting event tickets and craft supplies for their summer program Friday.

“They have a quality vision and it matches what we are trying to do.  They are are a great organization and it rings true with what we are trying to do,” says Bryant.

Through their “Give75″ campaign, one non-profit is chosen each month and the clinic provides key needs.

Bryant says the clinic’s mission matches those of Big Brothers/Big Sisters.

Club director Lisa Rayke says she is surprised and says many of the kids have never seen a sporting event.  Members of the Sliders, Springfield Foxes football team and the Mid-State Mayhem roller-derby crew were on hand Friday for the presentation.
