Boys & Girls Club board member: Solicitation calls are legit

By  | 

DENISON, TX - A day after officials at the Sherman and Denison Boys & Girls Clubs called us to warn the public about a possible phone scam using their good name, a board member now says they've cleared things up.

Board member Johnny Allen says he got a call from a group soliciting donations for a magic show and mentioned the Boys and Girls Club.

Today Allen says they jumped the gun. The group is legitimately selling tickets to a magic show at the Boys and Girls Club next month benefiting the Shriners.

Boys and Girls Club officials say they apologize for the mix-up.
