International Juggler’s Association gives check to local Boys and Girls Club for a buddy bench

The International Juggler’s Association is in town this week for the first time this year.

Not only is the group impressing folks with their skills, but they’re also giving an award to 10-year-old Sammie Vance for her work on the buddy bench project.

On Tuesday night, the IJA presented Sammie with a bottle of caps and a $300 dollar check to go towards buying a buddy bench for the Fort Wayne Boys and Girls Club.

Inspired by her work, Sammie is the first recipient of the IJA’s Sammie Vance Youth Civic Achievement Award.
