Who's Casey Williams?

Casey is a Boys & Girls Club of Greater Santa Rosa (BGCSR) alumnus and was recognized as Youth of Month when he attended in the 1980’s. Participating in after-school programs had a profound impact on Casey and he is now one of its biggest local advocates. A comedian, event producer, and owner of Barrel Proof Lounge, Casey was a key partner and thought-leader in BGCSR’s evolution into The Zones in 2023 as a member of its Board of Directors.

Thank You

We'd like to thank our partner, Redwood Credit Union, for helping us recognize deserving youth in our community and supporting this important initiative.
