The BGCCA Bunny

Boy & Girls Clubs of the Capital Area (BGCCA) is honored to have Benny the Bunny serve both as the organization's official mascot and as inspiration for Capital Area kids of all ages.

My name is Eggs Benedict, aka Benny, and I'm delighted to serve as BGCCA's official mascot!


I want to take a moment to express my gratitude for the warm welcome I have received since joining the BGCCA Family. As I settle into my new role, I am eager to demonstrate my enthusiasm and bring joy to those around me.

Just like many of the youth we serve, I, too, had to seek out BGCCA to find my place in the world. After a difficult start in life that included an injury that left me visually impaired in one eye, I have found solace and comfort in the caring environment provided by the BGCCA community.

I look forward to bringing a little bit of joy and positivity into the lives of those we serve!

​"I love to teach kids about the importance of having kindness and respect towards animals.  It's really special to see kids who were once afraid of animals, come and pet me on their own. We are building trust and learning that animals are friends that can provide companionship and comfort when we need it most."
