Gray says there are thousands of young people who will benefit from the new location which is anticipated to open in 2021.
“My father grew up in the south end of Hartford and was heavily involved in the boys and girls club so when he heard there was a need for the boys and girls cub to have a new facility we wanted to do everything we could to help them achieve that goal” says attorney Keith Trantolo.
